How to transport bananas in Uganda

Matooke is a variety of starchy banana, commonly referred to as cooking bananas. The fruit is harvested green and then cooked and often mashed or pounded into a meal. In Uganda it is steam-cooked and the mashed meal is one of the national dishes of the country.

“Matooke is similar to mashed potatoes but instead it is boiled and mashed plantains wrapped in banana leaf. It is everywhere and served with every meal: with eggs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Even though it is pretty bland-tasting on its own usually it is mixed with the “sauce” which is surprisingly pretty good and I've grown to really love it.”
