Musa campestris var. limbangensis (Light)
Limbang Swamp Banana
A smallish Musa from northeastern Sarawak and Brunei on the island of Borneo that forms extensive clusters of dull light green, sparsely blotched pseudostems to 1 m (3 ft.) tall. The upright inflorescence displays beautiful, light pink-purple bracts followed by amazing, small, slender, whitish fruit with very light purple striations. Morphologically, it is intermediate between var. limangensis and var. campestris and experts say it could be a hybrid between the two. Seeds have perhaps never offered before.
