TC produces clones of the parent plant. Basically the diversity of bananas is derived from random mutations that are selected and propagated. Kind of like selective breeding in animals, but less breeding and more selectivity. Some cross-pollination is possible in certain types also.

Somatic mutations. And some old fashioned breeding with some edible types that have some limited fertility (e.g., this was the basis of the FHIA breeding program, for example).
