 Ensete superbum  is known as Kadu bale in Kannada and Kallvalai in Tamil. It grows in arid, unfertile regions of the Western Ghats. The fruit are not edible as they have numerous black seeds, hard as small pebbles.
 The Jungle plantain is sometimes grown as an ornamental in some gardens. It is supposed to have medicinal qualities.
