Default Re: Pisang Raja vs. Raja Puri

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.

This is really good to know. My RajaPuri is about 5 ft at the pstem. It has fruited twice with small fingers but the fruit died before maturing. .... I've noticed a couple of other members state and shown pics of their RJ with fruit finger near normal/full size. ...This was making me drought my plants were labeled correctly.
