Smile Banana species

Hello all,

I am a nature lover from Peninsular Malaysia and am interested in knowing more about bananas. I felt fortunate to come across this interesting and informative organization and would love to interact with you all. I would be grateful and appreciative in learning more about bananas from members of this community here.

I happened to come across a wild banana tree at a forest edge which had its spike growing upward and was quite different from other common species. I would be very grateful if someone could let me know its ID (Photo)?

Thank you Sirs,

Jack Leong.

Thank you Sir.

It was growing in the wild. I did not have a chance to taste it. I just checked the photo of "musa velutinaon" on the website. The color of the inflorescence of the species I saw was green and not purple/red as that of the musa velutina.

Thank you for the banana lists you have enclosed. I will check using the list.

Rgds,

Jack Leong

Default Re: Banana species

If wild I would collect a pup or two. The plant looks to be short or dwarf variety, which would make a great potted or yard plant. (note: if seeded, seeds do not necessarily come back true to the parent. Collect pups) ... Also, the banana bunch appears to be mature, collect it if you can. Cut one of the bananas open and post a picture. This is to determine the seed content and if eatable.

The plant could possibly be a Musa Ornata variant. There seems to be some variation of the colors in this cultivar. I cant tell if the bunch was red/pink and turning yellow/greenish when mature ... This could be one of several species and/or an undocumented wild cultivar or mutation.

Do a web search for banana cultivars indigenous to Malaysia.

Thank you Sir. Thank you for your advise and the useful information. After searching from the website for its information based on your input and link, it does look like it is Musa Ornata. But I have to confirm it when it is fully ripened to see if the fruits would turn red/pink.

As I will not get back to that site for a while, I will not be able to perform those tests as you mentioned or obtain its pup. But I will certainly do so the next time I am there in the near future, cut its fruit and take a picture, and post them here on this thread.

Thank you Sir,
Best regards,
Jack Leong

Dear JBijl, thank you for the warm welcome !
As I will not get back to the jungle edge which is a few hundred Kilometer away for a while, I will not be able to get its seeds soon. However, I will get back there in a few weeks and hope to get some ripened seeds and find a way to send them to you.
Best regards,

We are kind of like a big family on here.

Forums can be weird; some are friendly, while others are more professional. This almost a balance of the two. The only forum I have been on that was even friendlier than this, was an acting forum. Actors tend to be big huggers, and that bled through to the board, but outside of that, this is the most welcoming forum I have been on.

On here, you're kind of like a long-lost cousin or something, but we're all family.

I don't think the fruit will turn red/pinkish, but might have been red/pink when the bunch first formed. Then turning greenish/yellow when ripe as in your picture. I believe you can find this verity in you local markets. If so take a look at the colors and the flesh to compare.

OH ... welcome to the forums.

Thank you Mr Hanks for sharing the rare dawn redwood trees and site, and the wonderful and valuable photos that you have taken that are so fascinating to know and learn them. It shows you have travelled wide and far to pursue your passion at least for this dawn redwood. I have yet to explore more on your websites which will be very interesting to me. Thank you for sharing the videos too.
Best regards,
Jack Leong.
