Ibitoke refers to plantain, a type of banana. Green plantains are peeled by making two or three cuts along the length of the fruit , just deep enough to cut through the thick skin but not the fruit. The skin is then easily stripped off in pieces. Ripe plantains are thin-skinned and easily peeled. Unlike bananas, In Burundi, plantains are usually cooked.
