Fe'i banana or Orange banana is a cultivar of banana that occurs on Pacific islands, the Moluccas, and in Papua New Guinea. Unlike other banana species, its sap is red, and not white. When ripe, the fruit has an orange-red color. Today, it is not clear where the banana grew originally. It might have been on Papua. Unlike the dessert banana, this kind of banana is rarely eaten raw.
