AgriStarts has Pisang Ceylon, which is pretty much the same thing as Mysore. I'm not sure if it's correctly labeled however, as we know the case with AgriStarts Ice Cream

Not TC, but with the amount of PK pups that I and the recipients of my PK pups have distributed it should be getting easier to find one. That was my master plan anyway. I do not believe it has been TC'd but ya never know!

I don't even know if it's any different from any other Mysore but it sure has some great fruit! It's looking like it will dominate my small garden space at some point unless something much more amazing comes along.

The DB has a permanent spot now too after this last bunch.

This plant is a type of Namwah, not Mysore.

I now have both so at some point in time I'll be able to see what the difference is. The plants themselves don't look so different. I imagine the Klotek will fruit early this Fall.

I have a Pisang Klotek (thanks Mitchel) and a Pisang Ceylon (thanks Tony) right next to each other. Neither is full size yet, but I don't think even an expert could distinguish them. They look identical to me so far. I'm hoping that some day that I'll have fruit from both to compare. But the chances of both flowering at the same time seems pretty remote. Maybe I'll get lucky.

Does anyone have both Misi Luki Awak and Ice Cream Awak? Are they any different with respect to height, productivity, taste?

I don't have them, but my friend in Belle Glade does, and I have harvested them dozens of times. The Ice Cream Awak is taller than the Misi Luki Awak. The Ice Cream Awak is far more productive than the Misi Luki Awak, more fingers per hand and more hands per bunch. As far as taste I think they are similar.

I am growing both, but neither have produced fruit yet. Probably this year. I've tasted them both, fruit from other folks, like Mitchel. They are the same thing, at least in terms of taste. Both are productive and similar in height, though without growing them side by side, it is hard to say if they are exactly the same.

I have both with no fruit.
Misi from Going Bananas and Ice Cream from Walnart.

They look totally different and the Ice Cream is entirely more vigorous.

Maybe it's time for another ice cream thread.
Guess I could do a "real Misi" thread too.

Only if by "real" you mean Going Bananas version, which came from Agristarts.

I'm really not up on the debate.
I've seen the threads but never actually read them.


I'm workin on some pics

There is no debate. The real Misi Luki is a Mysore.

The "Misi Luki" that Going Bananas and Agri starts sells is Awak or Namwah.

Which one do you have?

Not true actually, though Gabe has asserted this. In one of Jeff Daniels' publications on bananas (Illustrated Guide to the Identification of Banana Varieties in the South Pacific), there are 3 different cultivars called "Misi Luki" in Samoa. One is Mysore, one is a Pome (the "Improved Lady Finger" of Australia, like Brazilian/Dwarf Brazilian), and one is Yangambi KM5. Note that none are Pisang Awak, which is what is sold as "Misi Luki" in the mainland US. So, to say "Misi Luki" only refers to Mysore in Samoa is false; though perhaps historically it was true, if the Pome and Yangambi were recently introduced.

If Jeff would like to come and explain that's fine, until then I'll go with what Gabe says. And for the sake of argument we both know that what I'm talking about here is Mysore vs Awak because that's what the retailers are selling as "Misi Luki"

Agreed, we are talking about Awak vs. Mysore. My point is that name "Misi Luki" in Samoa (where the Pisang Awak clone sold in the US is said to have come from) is not only Mysore, as Gabe has asserted. It's like a Samoan visiting the US, catching a fish he is told is called a "bass", and him telling his friends in Samoa that "bass" in the US means Paralabrax clathratus (kelp bass). While that is true, the common name "bass" refers to dozens of species of fish in several families.
