Hi everybody!
I bought these two pups recently and was told they were Filipino Sabas (which apparently are also sometimes known as Cardabas?), hoping you experts could confirm for me.
Hereís a picture:

That's some kind of cavendish. Short, open petioles.

Really? That’s a bit disappointing. I got this brought from interstate (AUS) so it wasn’t cheap... I can get cavendishes at my local nursery for a quarter of the price I paid. Plus I would never grow a cavendish because of its ubiquitousness and the lacklustre taste.

The guy who sold it to me it said it was given to him by a Filipino, so maybe there’s a chance it could be another variety popular with Filipinos? Lacatan or Latundan banana? Does the patchy trunk mean anything?

How tall is this plant? ... At the base is a bulged which make me think of 'Little Prince". But Little Prince is not a very tall plant.

It's very small at the moment cause it was a pup that was recently divided from the mother plant. I will post again with pictures (maybe next year, as we're getting colder here) when the plant has reached maturity (and hopefully flowering and fruiting).

Sure it could be some other AA or AAA type. Sabas have longer, closed petioles and are much more green overall.

I just queried her on origin and authenticity. Waiting for reply. Saba is next best after Lacatan so I've been told.

I called her recently. She said that she got the original plant from her Burmese friend.

That's great to know Lacatan is in Australia.
