Need to find green bananas in Bay area!!

msant | Nov 19, 201411:03 AM     9

Hi everyone! I'm pulling my hair out trying to find green bananas to make 'pasteles' a Puerto Rican holiday dish. We need green bananas…NOT plantains. I've called supermarkets, Costco, even asian markets and nothing. I've contacted Puerto Rican clubs in bay area and have gotten no response in the past couple of months. I've contacted Latin supermarkets but unfortunately they are predominately Mexican and have no idea what the dish is or what I'm talking about. They show me bananas that have some green in it or plantains. :(
I'm so sad!
