Default Mysore?

I harvest bananas occasionally from a fellow banana farmer's field and he has tried to tell me these are manzano. I am fairly certain that they are mysore and that there is just some confusion between him and the elderly cuban man he acquired the trees from. If you have ever heard an elderly cuban man speak you could possibly understand how mysore was heard as manzano

They don't look like my Mysore or Manzano.

Nick, if you did the harvesting, then it should be dead easy to tell if they are Mysore -- the undersides of the leaves should be light purple and the midrib should be purple. I think the purple undersides are supposed to be most evident on the leaves of young plants. See below.

The bunch looks pretty similar to this Mysore bunch:

I never paid much attention to the leaves, but perhaps next time I'll look. One of the most interesting characteristics of the bunches is that it will form 1-2 additional hands further down the bunch. It will switch back to female flowers after producing male flowers. SO what you usually see is like 10 hands and then a gap and then 1 or 2 more hands.

Default Re: Mysore?

Nick, looking at my own Mysore subgroup plants, what I should really say is that the undersides of newly emerged leaves are purple. As leaves age, they lose the purple. So you'd need to look at a plant in the mat that is growing new leaves, not the leaves of the old plant you are cutting the bunch off.

And yes the young plants have purple/bronze undersides

Cool. I love the sense you get of being in a jungle from the photo.
