Default What is "Musa dwarf green red"?

Hi

I went to a local nursery and they have 1 gallon "Musa dwarf green red". The tag didn't say anything else but that it grows to 8 feet tall.The workers there won't know so I didn't ask them, so I figured I would ask here.
What exactly is it? What are other names for it?
They sell for close to $9.


Thanks a lot

Patrick

It is a green mutant of the common 'Dwarf Red'. Also sometimes called 'Colorado Blanco'.

Hi

Thanks for the answers, I will probably get it.
If anyone has more to add about this banana, I would still be glad to hear it.

Thanks again
