Plantain is a plant species that belongs to the family Musaceae (the same plant species as bananas). These are starchy fruits that are widely cultivated and consumed in tropical regions around the world. Plantains are similar in appearance to bananas but larger with thicker skin. They can be eaten ripe or unripe, and range in flavour from slightly sweet to more starchy and potato-like. Order high-quality plantain here at fantastic prices!
You can add fibre, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, vitamins C and A) to your dishes with plantain. These tropical fruits can be fried, boiled, baked or grilled. In many cultures, plantains are a staple food that are commonly used in soups, stews and sides.
Pound into a dough-like consistency and boil (or fry) to make the popular Afro/Caribbean dish fufu.
