  • Plantains


A plantain is a lot larger than the 'ordinary' banana. The skin of the plantain can be green, yellow-green, dark yellow, brown or black. This is due to the different stages of maturity. The skin of the plantain is thicker and a bit harder to peel. A plantain has a high amount of starch. As a result they are not nice to be eaten raw and always need to be cooked. After cooking, the plantain has a lovely sweet taste. As the plantain ripens and turns darker in colour, the texture of the plantain becomes softer and sweeter.
