Default Red Plantain

I read an article somewhere online that there are red plantains. I have never seen them and would like to know if anyone else has.
Some people go bananas, I went plantains.

That 'plantain' is not a plantain banana, it is a completely different plant.

They exist, but I don't know anywhere to get them in the US. Recently somewhere on this site (can't seem to find it right now), someone posted a plant from ebay which had red fruit and looked like it could have been a plantain.
