While Lakatan or Bungran is longer, a Latundan banana provides a shorter but fatter form of edible flesh. Its skin is thinner in texture, light yellow in color when ripe, but deliciously sweet to taste. Its flesh is more white in color, it tastes tangier which offers more of that tropical flavor. In fact, Latundan is preferrable to my taste compared to Lakatan. This fruit is said to have been introduced by a French clergyman from India. Just like the Lakatan or Bungran, Latundan bananas are not just simply a dessert, but also added to a variety of desserts all around the Philippine country.
