No hay una fecha exacta pero probablemente, el pan de plátano estuvo hecho primero en mil ochocientos años en los Estados Unidos.

For this statement, should I use "primero" or "primer"?

Thanks

**primero[/colormy question now is, by platano what exactly do you mean, platano could be a platain or it could be a banana. In Guatemala a platano is somewhat similar to a banano only larger, and it has to be cook to be eaten, although some people eat it raw...!guacala!@. **In Mexico a platano is a banana,and a platano macho is a platain. Go figure!

@ guacala is a mexican word meaning gross, and, I dont know its origen.

In Cuba we call them platano verde and platano maduro. We never use the word banano. For a complete explanation and some very curious details look at the third thread under announcements and celebrations. Someone posted something really interesting there. Pictures and everything, I've never seen anything like it.

primero...in that context, but the construction of the sentence sounds a little funny. My example (below) is better, but I'm not even sure whether Estados Unidos comes before or after mil ochocientos...but it is definitively better.

No existe una fecha exacta, pero probablemente el pan de plátano apareció por primera vez en los Estados Unidos alrededor de los años mil ochocientos.
