My first Pisang Raja in the ground today. Had transplanted to a bigger pot a few weeks ago. Decided to kill a bisexual papaya to make room.

Today I put my new Musa Double plant into a huge pot, mulched it and found the sunniest spot in my SF Bay Area backyard. Hoping for good things. Will be looking for tips around the site on watering and fertilizer!

Well........As usual I'm not to sure what variety I planted all I know is that is a large pup from a plant i bought from Lowes that the tag said Ice Cream.

The plant has been in the ground about 90 days or so and it's approx 7' tall the pup was about 3'

I moved the pup and took pictures of both Mom & Pup and my Black pup lol

See pictures:} Any help with identification would be appreciated.

Thanks

I planted a pup of this Hawaiian banana that has never been given
a name as far as I, or the collector know. Although many 'nanners
lose their color as they grow, the 2nd photo is from a banana with
about 12 ft of p-stem, so I don't think these lose their color.





Unless you know of some others, the only ones I know to exist are the isolated mat where it was found, some in the yard of the guy that collected a pup, and now mine. The gentleman that located it initially is familiar with the ones in the local botanical gardens, and has never seen it in any of them. The fruit is similar to those in the Iholena group, but more tapering on the end. The ones in my friends yard had p-stems that topped out at about 12-14 ft. If anyone has a guess for the ID, please let me know. Here are some links to photos of the mother plant on flickr. The collector calls it musa-2 (since it is un-named), and also has a slightly different one at his place that is partly variegated with what he thinks is an Iholena Lele or something similar that he calls musa-27. Mine shows none of the Lele traits, and should have good reddish color to it.

musa-2 bunch

musa-2 partly variegated with musa-27 traits

musa-2 partly open leaf

musa-2 on left, variegated with musa-27 on right

If mine lives, I'll post pics as it progresses.

Yug, it is definitely in the Iholena subgroup. The leaf coloration and shape, as well as the bunch structure are the giveaways. I agree that the very lengthily-pointed fruits seem a bit extreme for known Hawaiian Iholena cultivars. It could be an unknown variety, lost in Hawaiian history and now recovered, or it could fall within the wide phenotypic variation known for, say, Iholena Lele. I'd contact Angela Kepler. She'd be interested and able to pin it down.

Ah, she is connected with the Hawaiian 'nanner book, no? Seems there are a number of books about Hawaiian plants with her name on them. I hope there is a real interest in the plants, and not merely getting one's name on rather pricey books. I've left an email with the UH Press, and will follow up with a call. Even better if I can find a Maui number for her. The co-author is her husband.

I like how it has the green stipe down the center on the backside of the leaf. A R. Iholena's is pretty much just red. :^)

Yeah, I like the unusual color pattern, too. If not for that, I may not have even noticed it much. I'd probably have thought it was an Iholena-something with skinny fruit.

Yes, she is the lead author on the Hawaiian banana book. Take my word as an academic author, there is no big money to made in writing books like hers. I bought in on Amazon for about $60. Given that it weighs about 10 pounds, is nearly 600 pages, has over 1000 beautiful photos, and is the only source of good keys to many banana cultivars and subgroups -- it's a bargain at twice that price! And yes, she has a real passion for the plants. She had been very kind and generous with her time in my communications with her. If you do a bit of internet sleuthing, you can find her direct email address.
