If there was a culturally unifying factor in Africa, especially the local community, it would be “tonto”. A local brew made out of bananas “matooke” and sorghum.
But this became something of the past, not because the brew is no longer made but the purpose it used to serve and the mode of consumption.
You will learn how to grow bananas, ripening process and the making of beer,A visit to a tonto pub is worth trying as you will meet and share with the locals.
Bananas are edible fruits also known as berries botanically and are produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. In some countries, bananas used for cooking may be called "plantains", distinguishing them from dessert bananas. The fruit is variable in size and color.
