I would like to see photos of all 3 if you have them. This will help to know the differences.

Kev,
I think the last part of the text is important, I read some were that balbisiana has the widest natural distributions of all the wild bananas with a number of subspecies not officially recardnised I wouldn’t rule it out that they have red in them, and it would call to question the ID of that balbisiana in a botanical garden in Germany. David Constantine say’s. (To some extent this uniformity is an illusion. While not as variable as M. acuminata taxonomists working in the field in India and south-east Asia are well aware that variability exists in M. balbisiana.)


Regards, Tony

There seems to be two Musa balbisiana's on the market via seed right now, one of them grew better in cooler weather and did indeed have a midrib with tints of red/pink, but I killed them by not protecting them in the winter.
