How To Store

Store fruit at room temperature to promote ideal ripening. Higher storage temperature will speed the ripening process. Never store under 45 degrees as chill can occur.

How To Select

Plantains should be firm and not mushy or cracked. They can be purchased at any color stage; green, yellow, or black.

Usage Tips

Green plantains are firm and starchy and can be used as a potato substitute, usually boiled and mashed. Yellow plantains are sweet in flavor and are usually baked, fried, or mashed. Black plantains are sweet with soft texture and are mainly used as a fried dessert.
