Green fruit, or fruit that is just turning yellow, is starchy like a sweet potato and is best fried. great for frying.

As the fruit turns yellow, the starch begins to convert to sugar. The slightly sweeter, softer yellow, or yellow-and-black plantain is ideal for use in casseroles, stews and fritters.

Dark brown / black Chiquita Plantains are the sweetest and are great for desserts. At this stage, they can also be simply peeled and eaten as is.
