Sab-a banana is primarily a cooking banana, included in pochero, chicken curry, and other Filipino dishes. You can also fry your sab-a with a sugar coating for a sweet snack or you can eat them fresh for a quick energy boost.
Sab-a banana is a banana cultivar originating from the Philippines. The fruits become ready for harvesting 150 to 180 days after flowering, longer than other banana varieties. Each plant has a potential yield of 26 to 38 kg per bunch. Typically, a bunch has 16 hands, with each hand having 12 to 20 fingers. The Banana tree is actually considered a herb because it does not have a woody stem.
