    Here in South africa I never heard of Plantines, to me it looks like Bananna, or is it from the squash family?

    Kind regards

      Plantains definitely look like bananas, but are actually more similar in taste and texture to potatoes. They’re quite tough and starchy, but great in a variety of dishes!
