Fruit or vegetable?

Although they look alike and are from the same family, plantains and bananas are more easily distinguished by how they are used. The banana is usually eaten raw when the skin is yellow. A plantain, on the other hand, can be enjoyed at every stage of development; whether green, yellow, or spotty black. A green plantain is used similar to a potato in savory dishes offering a mild taste and starchy texture. The yellow variety turns to spotty black as it ripens and the flavor becomes increasingly sweet. These ripe plantains can be enjoyed as a delicious side or used in hearty entrées and mouthwatering dessert applications.
