"Banana Musa" from Wal-Mart

carsoncitypalmsFebruary 20, 2014

Hello banana fans! I just picked these up at my local Wal-Mart for $12.88 and I am just interested in what kind of Banana's I got here. As you can see in the picture below it's just entitled "Banana Musa"..

Thanks!

I got lucky and got the last one that had two (2) plants with it.

And here's the lousy description that Wal-Mart gives customers when they buy plants.

ive read around and seen posta about other people who got these from walmart and some are assuming that these are "Super Dwarf Cavendish" musa acuminata

if it has any reddish blotches then yes that is most likely Dwarf Cavendish. I think I do see a bit of red that would indicate that. It will more obvious as it ages and you can get it some sun.
