POD ~ Banana Blossom

Banana Bloosom

A bloom on one of the many banana trees in our garden.

Banana hearts or blossoms are used as a vegetable in South Asian and Southeast Asian cuisine, either raw in a fresh salad or steamed with dips or cooked in soups, curries and fried foods. The flavor resembles that of artichoke. As with artichokes, both the fleshy part of the bracts and the heart are edible.

My Tropical Garden Prints Project is a portfolio of over two dozen images from our garden.
