Description

A vigorous, medium-sized, wild banana from Northeastern India. The pseudostems are densely clustering, dark reddish brown, with a waxy white bloom towards the leaf stalk. The leaf is bright green above with a pale midrib and grayish below with a conspicuous purple brown midrib. Although M. cheesmani has been described half a century ago, we believe this enormously attractive and colorful banana has been introduced into cultivation only recently through our efforts. It is related to Musa sikkimensis and will succeed under similar conditions.
