When you trim the bunch you improve the calibre of the remaining fruits.

There are some grades and standards for plantains.

Calidad Longitud Dorsal Peso en gramos

Especial 31 cm. o más 368.55 o más

Primera 20 cm. a 30.99 cm 198.45 g a 368.3 g.

Segunda 15 cm. a 19.90 cm 141.75 g a 198.2 g.

Especial and Primera sell for a lot more than segunda. You never see segunda here. Most of what I see is at least 10 inches long and half a pound.
