Banana stems vary in size, averaging at least five centimeters in diameter when sold in markets, and are cylindrical to elongated in shape. The outer layer of the stem is a fibrous, green sheath that is inedible and tough to remove. Underneath this layer, the core is the edible portion of the stem and is white to pale green-yellow with a firm, dense consistency. Banana stems are crisp with a texture similar to jicama and have a mild, sweet-tart, vegetal flavor.
