Default Variegated banana?

A local nursery has some variegated bananas for sale. Is there any way to id what variety they are? I asked them what variety they were and they just said varigated banana. They cost $195 each and are about five feet tall. You can visit ty ty nursery's website and see a picture on the homepage.
Thanks,
farmboy

Yeah, I've read several bad reviews of TyTy so be careful if you order anything from them. There website is good for a laugh, though. Some "interesting" pictures on there!

I agree not an Ae Ae! There are many other places to buy from.

Well, to me it looks like an Ae-Ae. But then, it could be a Variegated Basjoo, too, but I've never seen one. I realize that they've not been the role model for customer service, and there are a lot of complaints against them. In all honesty, I have been very satisfied with my orders from them in the early 90s. My biggest disappointment was in the late 90s, when they said that the WA State Dept of Agriculture would not allow them to send plants to this state.

Be warned about their Ae-Ae. They have a 1-week return option on this plant. So if you're ordering by mail or the net, keep this in mind. But if you are local and can pick up a healthy large size specimen, it may be worth it. Particularly, if it's a true 5-footer, i.e., measured from the soil to the base of the newest leaf petiole.

Is this what you guys saw?
The Nursery at TyTy: Variegated

Notice that the pups are in "Monrovia" pots. That a large reputable nusery. Now, comes the question whether the plant came from them or not, eh?

Whatever else that owner may be, he has some minor accomplishments under his wing. At the bottom of the following article, it gives a short biodata of the Owner of Ty Ty Nursery:Buy Banana Trees, Banana Bulbs and Banana Plants For Spring Planting

Only requirements are that they are kept away from the sun during the hottest part of the day and that they need a lot of heat to thrive. It will not do well where there is frost. So you'll have to bring it in during the cold weather months. I intend to keep mine in a heated greenhouse. You might ask them what they do with their Ae-Aes at their nursery in the winter.

As I said earlier, if indeed this is an Ae-Ae, at 5-foot tall, measured from the soil line to the base of the youngest leaf petiole, not counting the height of the vertical leaf, then at $195, that is a good price.

So would a shade house work? How high would it have to be?

Thanks,

The Ae-Ae could get up to 18 feet tall. So you'd need to allow for the length of the emerging vertical leaf as well. The Northeast side of the house would probably be okay, too. That is, if you have a tall enough house. That way you don't have to put a shade lath over the plant. It's probably only sensitive when they're pretty young. But when they get to be 6 feet or more, they appear to be doing okay without any shade, from the pictures I've seen.

Hey Farmboy,

Not exactly sure where in South GA you are located, but here are a couple of links to a member that lives in Savannah, GA and his success with his AeAe. Just thought it might help if you decide to purchase one. If you do, please be sure to post pics and we all love to see the beautiful AeAe...

Please tell me you mean west of Savannah. If not, Douglas and Vadalia must have moved way out into the Atlantic... I figured you meant west, but I do look forward to seeing your purchase...
