The present experiment was conducted to evaluate the best plantain varieties for chips and vegetable. Five plantain varieties; Cachaca, Saba, Kitawira, Niginu and Kibunga obtained from College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (JUCAVM) were evaluated for their processing (vegetable and chips) and physical quality attributes. The experiment was carried out in the post harvest laboratory in 2014. To determine the chips quality, the fingers were peeled, sliced to a thickness of 2 mm and deep fat-fried in vegetable frying oil at initial temperature of 180°C for 4 min.
