The banana plant inflorescence - before the banana turns into an actual banana, it actually is a flower. This flower, called a banana heart or inflorescence, is edible as well. It’s used in Indian cuisine as a vegetable, served steamed with dips and cooked in soups, fried foods, and curries. The heart is fleshy, and its flavor has been likened to an artichoke.
