Abstract : Starch and sugar changes in the fruits of plantain cultivars 'French Clair' and 'Bâtard' ('AAB' group) commercially grown in Cameroon were assessed in ambient conditions (30°C and 88% RH) at stages 1, 3 and 5 of ripeness. They were compared with cooking banana cultivars 'Popoulou CMR' and 'Laknao' ('AAB' group) and dessert banana cultivar 'Grande Naine' ('AAA' group), grown and ripened under the same conditions. In all cultivars, the pulp firmness and the starch content of the pull) significantly decreased from stages 1 to 5, while the reducing sugar contents and °Brix of the pulp significantly increased.
