I found this Musa Basjoo cultivar in an European shopping site. Its name is Musa Basjoo "Tchetchenie" and according to the site it is hardy to -10C (14F).

There is no other information on the site nor on the internet. I contacted the seller shortly before, and I expect a reply within the next few days.

Basjoo are pretty tough however I think the plant surviving -10C means the leaves and the main stalk (pstem) will wilt and dieback but the corn (root structure) will survive and a new plant will emerge when the temps warm up after winter. Its a good looking plant and produces a flower but my understanding is that the fruit is not considered edible.

Bajoo get pretty big and grow quickly. Do a search. There should be a ton of info and photos on this plant.

Thanks for the answer. Yes i have read about the regular Musa Basjoo, but this is a different form of Musa Basjoo (like Sakhalin, Sapporo etc.)

Pan,
What is your location?

An internet search shows a bit of information.......which I am sure you have seen already.

There are a few threads from 2007 wiithin these forums which mention the plant as well as a few other Basjoo varieties.

I am sorry I cannot link the posts from this device......but there are a few good discussions encompassing at least 10 varieties of basjoo that are similar in growth habit but grown in differnt geographic areas.

The discussions were about 10 years ago and were informative. One of our forum members Gabe15 I recall had a comment or two on the subject. Maybe he can offer some insight on your plant.

Hi Cincinnana,
I live in Greece/Europe

The only info i found is from this French site: Musa basjoo 'Tchetchenie'

I am not sure if the google translate works well. I think it says that the "Tchetchenie" is more vigorous, with stocky dark green leaves. Also its flower bud is larger and more greenish.

I found also a link by the member "The flying dutchman" in an old post but it doesn't work. Musa Nepal?

Please if it's possible post a link or tell me what do you know about the height, shape, growth rate and hardiness of this plant.

Thanks.

Hi, according to the seller, It is a new selection from a Belgian nursery, it is taller than Musa basjoo, with a bigger flower bud; its leaves are more stocky and thicker, making it more wind-resistant. It is hardy to -15/-18C, and grows very fast if you plant it in full sun, with abundant watering and fertilizing.

I will be glad to see some photos and hear the opinion of someone who has grown this banana plant.

Thanks.
