COMPOSITION

    plantain

    In Cuba, banana is replaced with plantain. It looks like a banana, but isn’t soft and easy to eat initially. If one can imagine a banana morphing into a potato, stop at about 35% and you will have a plantain.

    Taste
    Plantain tastes good when prepared, but doesn’t offer a very good time/benefit ratio when compared to a banana.

    plantain became an official snack on April 29th, 2012.
