Banana Verieties / Species - Wild VS Patented
 
Hello Dear Friends,
I was wondering if anyone of the forum professionals may know the
answer, How can I know if a Banana Variety is Legally Protected By
Patent or it's a wild species that no one has patent on ?

For my understanding, There should be a Book of all Banana Species
that are listed and for those who aren't listed as Patent by somone,
If you know about a reliable source, that I can get this data from
It will be a major help,

I appreciate your time and kindness,
Cheers.

There are plenty of good books out there. An excellent one to start with is by the authors Kepler and Rust "The world of Bananas in Hawaii: Then and Now".

Very few bananas have patents on them, you can search the US patent office database for some. Wild species should not be able to have patents on them, some selections of wild species do, but the legality/enforceability of such a patent is debatable.
