    Some food questions:
    1. When I was briefly in Guatemala, I became aware that there were two different kinds of bananas. The big yellow ones, grown mostly for export, and a smaller (good tasting) one they grew for local use. What words do they use for these? (Banano, plantain, plantano, etc.) Is there a general term that would include them both, and then separate terms for each.

    Moderation note: Just one question per thread, please.
