Default Pisang Klotek

Has anyone heard of this one? I went to look at some Ae Ae's today and while there bought a few new ones. From left to right are Pisang Klotek, Ele Ele, and Super Dwarf 'Novak'. After doing a google search the closest thing I find to Pisang Klotek is Pisang Klutuk. The owner said it was from Sri Lanka and very rare. He also said only the Kings were allowed to eat the fruit. Any thoughts?

I don't see an Ae Ae in there?????

Going Bananas has a PISANG JARI BUAYA in there list but not the one you mention. Dessert variety, 8-10 ft long leaves, thin pseudostem, slender fruit and long with slightly sub acid sweet fruit - rare and unique.

Ya I know, no Ae Ae's for me today. I did see 3 of them at two different nursuries and they were very large in 15 gallon containers, but not ony were they pricey, I wasn't that excited with the amount of white in them. I'm going to wait for my little feller to come in the mail before dropping 250.00 on one of these big guys. If anyone wants one and lives in so cal you find them at xotix-tropico on fairfax. Leon is really into rare stuff and travels the globe finding it. Super cool place! They really need a web site though.

Nice to get new ones isn't it! Looks like they need some fertilizer and a bit less sun(right now anyway), hard to tell what they look like when they are so droopy like that. Hope you can find out about the pisang, sounds very interesting.
I wouldn't spend $250 on a Ae Ae either. I would love to have one but my obsession with bananas doesn't quite go that far! lol.
Good luck with these!

Pisang means banana. There are many hundreds of varieties from Asia that begin with Pisang and the guy who you bought it from just happend to get one from over there, so you will probly not find any info on it.

Well he told me that is the correct name and that it's a loose translation of Banana of the kings. He also said good luck finding any info on it due to the extrememe rarity. He brought them to the US from TC's and suposedly not many in the tray survived. He has a lot of really strange stuff that he personally brought back from expeditions around the world so I guess this is just one of them. It will be cool to see how it grows and what the fruit tastes like! We bought lots of cool stuff and I even managed to talk my wife into buying one more Banana, a Sikkimensis Red Tiger.

My best advice would be to transplant it to a bigger pot or to the ground, as it looks small to the plant at the moment, and besides you will make the plant less stressed than leaving it there for a couple weeks, and then transplanting it.Remember that every time it is submitted to stress, it will stop growing.Just my opinion.

Your right, it was looking pretty sad in that little plastic container so I planted it yesterday and it looks just fine so far! After our big buying spree on Saturday I will still be planting stuff tomorrow but not until I pick up a load of free compost from the city!!

It's doing great! This is the same plant that is being given away in the latest contest thread.

works quite often for me. Also the picture of the DC is very intriguing, if I am correct is the flower coming straight out of a 2ft pseudostem.

They are super delicious, fruitier than other varieties in our yard. We are enjoying a huge bunch right now, too. I would call them the potato chips variety: cannot have only one

I still have pups from the original one I got from you almost 7 yrs ago. Anymore info on them? I had a flower once but a series of circumstances (wind, dogs, moving, etc) have yet to get fruit. I have managed to save two pups from it and it is in my garden now where it has a better chance of fruiting.

I finished up a bunch this year and gave away some. Everybody said it is the best tasting naner they ever et. Follow on pups are now at 10 and 8 ft.

Consensus so far is the same - the PK is the Pisang Ceylon.

There are some other threads that talk about Pisang Klotek. It is a Mysore variety (Mysore subgroup). Whether it is a just a different name for a known cultivar or a unique cultivar is the question. I think it is just another local name for what is more commonly called Pisang Ceylan (Ceylon). That conclusion is based on a small, unreplicated experiment in my yard. I planted Pisang Klotek (from Momoese) and Pisang Ceylan is the same hole so they would experience the same conditions. After about 4 years of growing them side by side, they are indistinguishable to me, so much so that I'm not longer sure which p-stem is from which plant. They are identical in height, coloration, fruit characteristics, etc. Great plants. My only complaint is they are taller than I'd like.

What I said in fewer words. Sri Lankans have their own language. I think PK translates as the king's banana.
