Musa Saba variegation?

islandbreezeJune 5, 2013

I received an order from FL hill about 3 weeks ago, and a supposed saba has red spots on the leaves. Is this typical of saba? I thought they were solid green...or was I sent the wrong banana?

Not an expert on Saba (or any banana, really...) but I do know a lot of young banana plants, even TCs, have wine spots on them that disappear with age.

No expert either but my Saba which I purchased from Going Bananas is solid green. On my second year with pups. Judging by its 10-12 inch trunk base last year I am guessing they shipped me what I ordered.

Oh well. Tried to post a pic but no luck. 7-8 foot tall Saba leaf the wind broke off.
