Chaokoh Banana Blossom is a long, tapered, tightly wrapped, deep purple bud of the banana palm. Banana blossoms are similar to artichoke hearts in taste. Chaokoh Banana Blossoms are pickled and ready to eat. Use this exotic fruit for the preparation of vegetable curries, stews and for the Filipino dish kilawing puso (a combination of banana blossom with mussels and squid in savory sauce). Moreover, banana blossom is delicious in desserts with coconut milk and sugar.
