Serving ideas

When green, this fruit is starchy. It is used in cooking as you would use a potato in soups, stews, baked, or fried.

When yellow, it is sweeter and gives a more exotic flavor to sauteed vegetables, or in sauces.

When black, it is sweet enough to eat like a banana, use in fruit salads and desserts.
