Banana flowers make sporadic appearances with a peak season in late fall and early winter.
Exotic banana flowers are the red-orange to deep purple, pointed, compact heads at the tip end of a forming bunch of bananas. Each bud has large outer petals that protect groups of small white flowers, offer their own distinct flavor-- starchy and slightly biter.
Like artichokes and apples, banana flowers color quickly when cut and exposed to oxygen. Keep a bowl of water, with lemon juice, nearby and place cut sections of the bud immediately in the bowl to prevent browning.
In Thailand banana flower is almost always served raw on the side with pad thai.
Members of the genus Musa, only flowers from cooking varieties are usually eaten as the flowers from eating bananas have a bitter taste. In Southeast Asian countries, the banana flower, is also called the banana heart. Used as a garnish and as a vegetable, the flowers are added to curry dishes and cooked in coconut milk. In Indonesian cuisine, banana flowers are mixed with pork and a hot sambal, cooked in a section of bamboo and served at their festivals or wakes.
