Description

For most edible bananas, the following codes work to show what genome they belong to.


A = M.acuminata

B = M. balbisiana

T = M. textilis (rare varieties)

S = M. schizocarpa (rare varieties)


Common groups are as follows:

AA = small, sweet, desert banana (M. acuminata derived edible diploid)

AAA = sweet desert banana (M. acuminata derived edible triploid)

AAB = semi-sweet or sweet variable bananas (M. acuminata x M.balbisiana derived triploid)

ABB = starchier cooking bananas (M. acuminata x M.balbisiana derived triploid)


(other genome groups include AB, AS, AAAB, ABBB, ABBT)
