The Plantain is the famous "cooking banana" that adds subtle flavor to many gourmet dishes. Notably larger than the traditional Cavendish, Plantains also offer edibility throughout the ripening cycle and for every meal of the day. If you are not afraid to try new and different produce items, you will love the Plantain.
Plantains can be stored at cooler temperatures to extend shelf life, however, they ripen as a Cavendish banana would.
Del Monte® plantains are rich in potassium and a source of vitamin C, vitamin B6 and high in fibre.
