Similarly, Nurfeta et al  also reported lower DM digestibility in rams reared on enset (Ensete
ventricosum) leaf, which is of the same family with banana, based diet which they attributed to higher levels of NDF, ADF and lignin in enset leaf.
(2002) RAPD analysis of genetic diversity among clones of the Ethiopan crop plant Ensete
The contents and density of minerals and trace elements in some main crops, plant based foods, and drinks from Ethiopia including teff barely, maize, wheat, lentils, gibito, yam, ensete
, Bulla, Kocho, oleaginous seeds, water, wine, tea coffee and Khat have been determined [20-31].

Edible bananas and plantains (Musa cultivars) are not native to Africa, although the genus Ensete
of the Musaceae family is considered native to the Ethiopian region, as well as regions eastward to New Guinea.

Peri-urban residents of the Woreda are mainly government employees and small-scale traders, while most rural households practice subsistence farming and rely heavily on "ensent" (nutritious bread made of the roots of Ensete
superbum, or "false banana" trees) for food.
Stochastic character mapping (SM) using reconstructed bat pollination (P=0.97) as the ancestral pollination syndrome for this family, since species of the genus Ensete
and several species of Musa are bat pollinated.

Assuming that the genus-level discrimination of phytoliths between Musa and Ensete
is correct, Musa phytoliths are indicative of cultivation--whether for food, fibre or fodder--and can be used to track agriculture across the continent (Vrydaghs and De Langhe 2003; Vrydaghs et al.

At rear, the wine-tinged leaves of Abyssinian banana (Ensete
