How many pieces of plantain are in 5kg?
We do not count the plantain as its simply not practical when handling big quantities like we do. As a very loose estimate, when the plantain is large, 2 pieces could weigh up to 1kg. When the plantain is of medium size, 1kg could be 3 pieces
Can you deliver anywhere in South Africa?
Yes. We partner with courier companies with nationwide coverage and we can therefore deliver anywhere in SA.
Can I order both green and yellow plantain?
Yes you can. Please make sure you specify your order preferences in the section provided for that during the ordering process. See our tutorial video on how to order.
It is however important to note that although we do our very best to pack the freshest possible produce, there is still the possibility that the plantain ripens in transit , especially for longer distances ( over 48h transit time).

I would also like plantain chips . Can you add few packets of chips to my plantain and / yam order?
We can unfortunately not pack individual packets of chips alongside plantain or yams as the chips are likely to be crushed under the weight of the plantain /yams in transit.
Plantain chips can be ordered as a standalone item from our online store.
Can I order over the phone?
Unfortunately no. Orders can only be placed via our online store to ensure traceability
