If Jon sent me the correct pup from what he calls his Misi Luki then Gabe says it's more than likely Namwah.

Ya looking at the plant on Jon's site, its 'Namwah', and if it's not the common 'Namwah' in the US, its certainly a Pisang Awak subgroup member, so basically some type of 'Namwah'. Not even close to 'Mysore'/'Misi Luki'.

This is what 'Mysore'/'Misi Luki' actually looks like.

Default Re: Misi Luki

'Misi Luki', if not the exact same, looks the same as 'Mysore'. It is unclear if they are the same clone or not (compared to what is available in the US), but in any case, they are both Mysore subgroup bananas and look and taste similar or nearly identical. Often times the difference between varieties in different locations in a subgroup can be very small, things such as height, fruit size, bunch size etc...but general fruit taste and most major morphological descriptors are the same. If your 'Misi Luki' does not resemble the plants above, then it is not 'Misi Luki'.

Gabe,

The literature I have read states that there are two plants documented as Misi Luki:
"Misi Luki Of India" -- a synonym for Mysore; plus
"Misi Luki Of Samoa" -- an ABB cultivar.

Do you have any experience with the latter?

The 'Misi Luki' of Samoa that I know is a Mysore. What is your reference for the ABB?

The Misi Luki that they sell in the U.S. is not the same plant as Mysore Misi Luki. So get both and your covered.

So, if Jon's is the US version of Misi Luki which is most likely a Namwah of some sort, and the real Misi Luki is a Mysore like my Pisang Klotek, I can say I personally prefer the Mysore Misi Luki over the US one having grown and tasted both. My wife also thinks the Pisang Klotek/Mysore is far superior to any of the bananas I've grown or any that she has ever tasted.

I also think the Mysore plant and fruits are better looking.

So Tony, now I'm curious to get your take on the differences between the Pisang Klotek and the other Mysore you have. How long til you think you'll get fruit on both?

The Misi Luki mysore should flower this year. No room to plant the U.S. Luki, still in container, so that will be awhile.

It is a Mysore but according to Gabe there are many. So you don't have any other non US Mysores?
