Default Re: Pisang Raja vs. Raja Puri

Nick, like Jon say's, the real deal for each of these are very different. Both are AAB genomes, but Rajapuri is a dwarf (about 2 m p-stem) with small fruit, whereas Pisang Raja is a full sized plant (4 m p-stem) with bigger fruit. The true Pisang Raja is supposed to have have orangish flesh. Rajapuri, on the other hand has cream colored flesh, and to me, the flavor is very similar to dwarf Brazilian (based on limited "sampling"). Rajapuri and dwarf Brazilian plants are nearly indistinguishable to me, except that full grown Rajapuri are usually shorter than dwarf Brazilian.
