I just think if the Indians are prepared to sell plants at a reasonable cost then that should negate the need for TC.
I agree with you, but the costs quoted so far have been excessive. If we can lower the cost per corm then it makes sense. TC comes in handy where import restrictions would not allow a corm to be shipped, but a certified clean plantlet from culture would be permitted.

I've e mailed them, still awaiting a reply. my only doubt with this one is having google earthed 'Rampur' it would appear to be on the northern plains of Uttar Pradesh rather than an upland area like Kalimpong, so the hardiness may not be all it's cracked up to be. still, we'll see.

is anybody actually working in the states? you're all permanently online...

at least it's evening time over here but you lot have got no excuse

Kev, it doesn't exactly negate the need for TC as TC does help eliminate the risk of pests that might accidentally come along for a ride. I would personally prefer a TC plant over a plant from a source with unknown risks of pests. USDA inspectors can't find everything and some locations are more lax than others.

Greetings to all

I personally tried to contact the Dr., but I did not receive any answer until now. Anyway I would like to participate in the purchase, even if I live in Europe, I think once the parcel reaches USA then it would be possible to buy it from one of you.

Blessings

I live over in the UK too and would be happy to join in depending on costs. It would be great to get a cold hardy fruit barer over to the chilly UK.

Hi,

I also want one or two, but Brazil does not permit imports of banana rhizomes. Perhaps lorax or anyone in South America can order some rhizomes for herself or himself and for me and send them further to my homekeeper to Brazil.

Best wishes
Basjoofriend

I'm interested also. Any idea on cost yet? I wonder if they can be grown from seeds? Looks like there are seeds in the picture of the one that's broke open.

Michael, I believe that this is a seedless banana. We are working on a group order and it will probably go into tissue culture and become more available after that. Pups get thinned in June so we need to be patient for a bit.

Thanks for the link. Funny they call it, "Virupakshi", not "Pahari Kela". I wonder if they're truly the same, and those are just regional names?

It seems that there are also different variations which they call 'ecotypes', one suitable for hill planting, another for plain planting.

One thing is for certain though, is they also call it the same "Hill Banana".

I think it is a different banana. The TC Hill Banana is from the Lower Palani hills and Sirumalai hills of Dindigul District, Tamil Nadu state in India.

The one this thread is about comes from hills of North West India it hints that it in the Himachal Pradesh region.

Thought this was interesting too:
Pahari Kela

Pahari is the local dialect
Kela is their common name for banana.
