Plantains tend to be firmer and lower in sugar content than dessert bananas. Bananas
are most often eaten raw, while plantains usually require cooking or other processing,
and are used either when green or under-ripe (and therefore starchy) or overripe (and
   therefore sweet). Plantains are a staple food in the tropical regions of the world,
    treated in much the same way as potatoes and with a similar neutral flavor and
         texture when the unripe fruit is cooked by steaming, boiling or frying.
