Re: Scientific names
I think Gard's question was regarding the naming more of seeded types, however, there is infact a standard naming system for edible bananas too. It is rather simple....Musa 'Cultivar Name' (Genetics Group). This setup is scientifically valid and accepted. You're right they do not have species names, but they gave up on that quite a long time ago when they realized it was invalid and came up with this system instead. It clearly shows the name, genetic origin, group association and ploidy level. Im sure many people have seen this used.
Musa 'Rose' (AA)
Musa 'Saba' (ABB)
Musa 'Cavendish' (AAA)
Musa 'Goldfinger' (AAAA)
Musa 'Giant Kalapua' (ABBT)-M.acuminata, M.balbisianax2, M.textilis
Musa 'Ramina' (Fe'i)- since the genetics of these bananas are not known, they are written as just (Fe'i).
