I don't think the real name for them is fig bananas but that's what everyone calls them here. They're little fat bananas about the length of the palm of your hand. Really, really good.

We Cubans eat a lot of those little bananas! We call them platanitos manzanos. I think they are sweeter than the bigger bananas. I have heard them called ladyfinger bananas as well.
Thanks for the recipes, Roselin! More for my must try list.
I will probably gain all the weight you are losing! LOLOL
