How do you pronounce cassabanana?
« on: April 20, 2017, 07:11:40 PM »
So, I am growing some cassabanana, and am curious how to pronounce it.
Is it casa banana? ("house banana..."?)
Or cassaba nana? ("melon grandma"...?)
When I tell people what it is, they keep trying to make it be some sort of banana variety...

Closer to your first.
I would think it would be cas-sa-banana
