Default Musa Danee?

Someone on another forum mentioned a variegated banana - from Thailand of course - called Danee. Anyone heard of it? I did a google, and couldn't find anything about it.

Definitely 'Danee' Steve. I@ve heard it from 2 sources now, albeit both in Thailand.

Ron, I assume it's a 'dutch' thing?

A dutch girl bought it in Thailand and could not find info about it.

I found this webpage a while ago,translates some of the Thai names to english.
M.M.P.N.D. - Sorting plant names - Thai index
Theres a 'Klay daeng' which I suppose could be roughly named as danee,okay very roughly,lol
I guess it comes down to the seller,to name it correctly.
Do you know where she got it from Helen?

Found out that 'Tanee' is a thai word wich means city or town.

So it means 'city banana'(kluay Tanee)

Yahoo! 360 - About Thailand~* - Going Bananas

Although kluay tanee bananas are sweet, they are full of hard, black seeds and are rarely consumed as a fruit. Fortunately, there are many other edible varieties(text from link)

Joy Re: Musa Danee?

I came across this thread and found it incomplete without any answer. It was around way before I joined you guys.



Here's the answer; this plant in question is actually the Musa balbisiana in its Variegated form as I have verified in another thread. Next, it is pronounced as Tharn Nee though spelt as Kluay Tanee. The other similar Thai word, Thani - pronounced Tarn Nee - means a rural town. Eg., Surat Thani.

Tanee is the name of a female ghost which according to Thai folklore resides within the plant.

Hope this won't put you off from keeping this nice plant. Btw, I have 2...

Bananas Brindando Re: Musa Danee?

Asian language seems like it's phoenetically translated to English by the individual writing it. Tog for example always uses the latin when describing something plant wise. In restaurants here...........now I can claim some expertise...... Tofu and Dofu for example mean the same thing. I wouldn't get too hung up on names used for sales purposes..........try to get the latin if you want real info.
Tog, any info about the ghost..........you know I and many love hearing this stuff...............Kind of like the "pin" and the double flower you told us about a while back.....................B

Mark, did you order your's from thailand?(ebay perhaps) I've heard good and bad and trying to collect info on this subject. Were there any roots on it at all?
The more info anyone will share about imported bananas from Thailand will help us all.

Got to go , today was the unoficial St.Patricks celebration and parade here.............over ate.....too much drink................must get.......to couch,,,,,,,,,,,,fast.........ugh...................

Bob, Yes it was an eBay jobbie. It arrived with no leaves and no roots either. It had also spent 45 mins in different soaks to kill off any bugs/nasties.

It was a large tuber with around 18 " or so of trunk. God knows how they expect them to grow with no roots to take up moisture/food and leaves for Sun. It just sat there for Three weeks without doing a thing. I contacted the seller who told me to cut off 10% of the trunk. When I did this I found that the inner stem has the dark brown rotten centre. I cut it back to almost the corm before I found clean growth. Then it just sat on the heatmat until it died.

Too expensive to buy another.
