They're actually sugar bananas. Tiny, smaller than ladyfingers, but incredibly sweet and nice. Seems to fruit completely randomly and sporadically, and when one fruits, it dies and makes a new small plant so they're entirely self sustaining. You can leave the fruit on for months, it never gets bigger or ripens once it's done, you have to cut it off to make it ripen once it stops growing. Then it just pours out massive amounts of whitish juice from where you cut it for ages.
