Question Are there still plants of the cross Mysore x Musa basjoo existing?

Hi,

I read one PDF document which I could get by one link in this forum, that Mysore was crossed with basjoo pollen in the 1930's successfully! 10 seeds were found in 10 bunches and 5 germinated, the seedlings were growing well and viable.

Are there plants of the cross still living? If yes, where they could be found and how is the fruit quality and its taste, and are they also seedless?

I hope that anyone will answer my questions. If no plants do live more, then I will replicate this cross in Brazil. I have Musa basjoo "Sakhalin" and 2 Mysore in Brazil.

Best wishes
Joachim

Gabe15, this is the link to the document, there I read about the success with cross Mysore x basjoo. I will renew it in Brazil, I do also have 2 plants of Mysore in Brazil.

But I wonder if are still plants from this cross living today. If yes, how to contact to get pups from them for Brazil, for Helton and me and also for Achim in Austria?

There are also Musa "Rio" and another cultivar, which are also successfully crossed with Musa basjoo with viable hybrid seedlings. Are there other names for "Rio" and the other cultivar? I will try to get these cultivars for my cold hardy fruit banana breeding program in Brazil.

Best wishes
Joachim
