Plantains are a type of fruit that can be used at any stage of ripeness in cooking, however to eat them raw they must be ripe. Similar to bananas, they change in colour from green to yellow to black as they get riper, however, they are not as strong as bananas in taste and have the taste of potatoes. They are starchy and firm.
