But it is about two very different fruits:
The banana plantain is a banana to be cooked, which consumes rather as a vegetable, while the soft banana is a fruit almost always tasted believed.

If the banana plantain distinguishes itself from his(her) "soft" cousins by its size
(25 in 40 cms)
, its real peculiarity holds the fact that the starch contained in its flesh is not transformed into sugars with maturity.
Reason for which it is necessary to cook it to consume it.
The banana tree is a very particular plant. It is in fact about a huge grass.
Indeed, its underground stem gives rise to leaves 3 meters long which imbricated the some in the others form a kind of trunk.
At first directed downward, "hands"
(groups of young people banana)
