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.
