Thanks for that list, this helps. Do you know which of these you can grow from seed?
Idk why, but UK only has cavendish and its subgroup like gran naine, sikkimensis, lasiocarpia, basjoo and a few other diploids like cheesemanii. The variety is so small compared to USA. Itís slowly changing with tissue culture of Musa Florida becoming more common but expensive. I think as the demand isnít there as not many people grow exotic banana in a cold country. We have a large range of tomatoes or cucumbers ect. Thereís naturally less availability when demand is less. But itís slowly changing.
