Malta’s got some pretty unique variations on things – just look at our swearwords – but one grower’s recent batch of Maltese bananas proves that Malta really has its own version of everything.

Joan Agius shared her Maltese bananas on the farming Facebook page Dilettanti tal-Agrikoltura, sigar u pjanti, saying: “I want to show you these Maltese bananas that I got this morning, xi ġmiel.”

And it’s no wonder she did – just look at these bad boys

It turns out that the Maltese banana has quite a few fans

Other growers soon began discussing their banana preference, with some sharing images of their own banana plants. One grower said that technically, that fruit is a plantain, but that didn’t stop his fellow growers from enjoying the banana revelry taking place.

“I’ve eaten from that species, and let me tell you, it’s truly better than that trash that we get in the shops. It’s so sweet you feel like you’re eating something that you’ve never eaten before,” said one person.

And there are even a few funky recipes for you to try out if you get your hands on some

One woman said she fries the thick bananas; after slicing them into manageable chunks, frying the pieces is a quick and easy way to create a super sweet and tasty snack that goes well with spicy foods, rice with beans, as well as BBQ’d chicken.

Fried Ripe Plantains

Another woman said she freezes bits of the banana and throws it over her morning cornflakes in the summer for a very chill and very Maltese breakfast

Whichever way you enjoy your Maltese banana, just remember the bask in the sweet flavour of the thick, girth-y fruit our forefathers planted and harvested for generations, just to get them inside of you today.
