Re: musa thomsonii

So mekong giant is a subtype of itinerans. Okay, but I thought yunnanensis was also quite tall, certainly taller than whats been labelled thomsonii. Im guessing that is just different subtypes also?

Re: Mystery nana

The stature of the "canarvon" matches my dwarf ducasse, but the bunches are different.
