Just purchased a "Royal Red" nana plant from a local house, but cannot find any info?
 
Does anyone know:
Is it edible? What is the real name? Growing characteristics? I will post a picture if necessary.
Thanks,
--Rick

Probably a var of Musa Ornata
For instance, I recently got a "Royal Purple" Musa Ornata.

Thanks for the reply! Is the fruit edible? Sweet?

I planted this Musa 'Royal Red' out this Spring as a 4 inch plant. I don't think that the fruit is edible, as it is an ornamental hybrid, probably of ornata.





I don't know how hardy it is, so I plan on digging and storing this one for the Winter.
