Why do people think plantains can't be eaten raw?

Bitter raw potato tastes turn most people off. But if you like it.....

plυмdυмplιngѕ is right. Someone could buy some plantains and then when they bite into it, they bite into what feels like a very starchy raw potato and then the bitterness smacks them sideways.
That could give someone an indication they shouldn't be eaten raw. While they can be eaten raw without worry, I don't think they can be enjoyed raw.

I don't believe people fear raw plantains. I think they just don't like the idea of eating something that tastes like a bitter raw potato. But if it floats your boat - go for it.
