Wow! It is really cool, the variegated fruits!! But unfortunately not hardy for Germany, but still possible in a large warm greenhouse or large wintergarden.

But there is also a hardy alternative for Ae Ae Variegated, this is Musa basjoo 'Variegata'. One friend in Walbeck/Germany has two or three young plants of Musa basjoo with variegated trunk, also presented in my book. Even the pseudotrunks are variegated! When they do pup, then I want one for my yard, a hardy Ae Ae Variegated!

Happy banana growing
Joachim

I still have no plants from Musa basjoo variegata, but I have some pics from young plants of my friend in Walbeck. The time will tell. When the variegated basjoos do pup, then they will perhaps produce more pups than Ae Ae Variegated, because basjoos are puping freely. E. g. my basjoo from Palme Per Paket (Spanner/Munich) was totally killed back and lost its pseudotrunks, the past winter was unsually long in Germany. It survived and puped with about 14 pups!!! Musa basjoo forms large groves, and Ae Ae doesn't that, I think.

The tissue culture is a problem for Ae Ae variegated and Musa basjoo variegated, there are so different plants, only green, only white chlorophyll-less and variegated, it's so unsure. So that they are propagated only by pups. However Musa Ae Ae Variegata forms only few suckers so that the plants are scare and so expensive. Perhaps Musa basjoo Variegata will be some more availablier than Musa Ae Ae Variegata in the future because freely suckering of Musa basjoo. The time will tell!

The first Musa basjoo variegata I have ever heard is in the Netherlands. That was some years ago.

Best wishes
Joachim

Hey ryan,

I emailed to you yesterday, do have you got my emails? Also the pics of Ae Ae of you are very interesting, might be value for my book! These shows the flower of Ae Ae Variegated, every reader might want to know whether the flowers of Ae Ae variegated will be also striped.

Please send me pics of Musa siamensis, Palawan Red and Ae Ae variegated in the full size by email now, you know now my email address. Thanks!

Oh yes, do you have pics from Musa itinerans?

Best wishes
Joachim
