Approximately 6-8 bananas depending on size.

Bacuba bananas, sometimes referred to as frying or cooking bananas, are stubby, fat, and semi-square in shape. Bacuba bananas are a tart and tangy variety with almost citrus-like notes. When underripe, their peels are a vibrant dark green that darken to a deep, rich yellow hue with spots when ready to be consumed.

Their slightly crisped and textured center, along with their sweet-and-sour flavor, makes them a good candidate for savory dishes, and they can be treated much like a plantain when underripe (although if you want to eat it from the peel, take care to allow it to fully ripen).
