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).
I've seen this AAA, ABB, ... before. It refers to the ploidy level (diploids, triploids, quadruploids, ...)[JoeReal]. I know this somehow deals with the number of DNA helixes in the cell, but how does it affect the fenotype of a banana plant ? Does triploidness causes a plant to have an edible bananas or ones without seeds, a big plant or a dwarf, ... ?
How should I interpret AA or AAA or ABB ? What does the A or the B stand for ?
