Banana Family- Ensete superbum

Ensete superbum is a species of banana family (Muscaceae) from India. Common Name: Wild Plantain, Rock Banana.
The fruits are about 3 inches long with dark brown seeds, which are hard like rock and thus the plant got its name. As the seeds are hard the fruits become non-edible.
