Yellow plantains are available year round.
Actually an entire subset of the banana, the plantain has been in North America far longer than the common banana. Those not familiar with the culinary attributes of plantains often view them as looking too black, too green or too bruised. However, that is exactly how they are to look at their different stages of edible use.
The plantain is larger, firmer and has a thicker peel than the common banana. As Yellow plantains are simply the younger stage of the fruit prior to its full maturity, they have a slightly firm and starchy textured mild flavored and lower sugar content. As plantains ripen, they develop a sweet taste and their color changes from yellow to black.
A Latin American, Caribbean favorite, plantains are often referred to as "cooking bananas". They are a cheap and delicious substitute for potatoes or rice in many Latin American dishes, including Mexican cuisine where tortillas are filled with cooked plantains.
Botanically a member of the genus Musa, plantains are believed to be native to India and Southern Asia. The Portuguese are thought to have introduced plantains to parts of the Americas and to the Caribbean Islands. Bananas and plantains represent the world's largest fruit crop in both production and trade.
