These are banana blossoms or commonly called banana hearts or banana flowers. The dark and tough husks are stripped off until a lighter yellowish covering is exposed. In-between those husks are the banana flowers shaped like fingers which are also tough and become softer as you go stripping along. The soft inner part is the one edible.

Flower Unknown To Me – Dahilayan Forest Park, Bukidnon, Philippines : Week 01, Day 8

 Dahilayan Gardens 066 (2)

An afternoon stroll at the sprawling Dahilayan Forest Park, I passed by this lantern-like flower that sways with the mountain breeze. I was amazed by its being light and when I broke one, it has some seeds that’s easily blown out of its pod and go with the wind.
