Siam Ruby banana.... edible?
« on: June 19, 2023, 05:34:32 PM »
Hi all, I found this banana at the least expected place, my local Costco. It was also labeled as "edible banana."  Unfortunately my search found conflicting info as some has said ornamental and some has said edible.  I always thought it was ornamental.  Depending on which type, they will be place in different spots in my yard.  Just wanted to also say, back 15 years ago when I was knee deep in rare and variegated Musa this was always on my list. I recall pups back then were $400 or $500 each. Wow how things change, got this for a measly $20 or so ahah.

According to this website, the fruit has a lot of seeds & is unpalatable.  So, it seems it's ornamental
