The Thai variegated banana is a bit more yellowish in its variegation than the Ae Ae. It is much easier to grow but still, being a chimera, is unstable with its variegation. We ship plants with at least one variegated leaf attached to avoid problems. These are fairly hefty plants when we ship and we guesstamate conservatively 8 lbs. We will refund postage if there is an overage. These are dug to order

My review is a hard one. I could have purchased an AE AE but I purchased the Thai thinking it was a musa ' Florida ' because it is often called Thai variegated as well so I assumed. My computer monitor and my phone make it hard to see the variegation pattern. I preffer the multitone variegates over 2 tone. I suppose this variety is actually Tanee which is barely edible at best because it is full of bullets. I wish I realised these things before I bought it but they don't inform you of these things in the description I guess they expect us to know. While this sounds bad and I may sound like a disappointed customer I am not. Tanee is supposed to be a nice tall very showy variety more cold hardy than the other variegates producing cool striped fruits. While other companies send banana corms chopped up and wrapped in moist plastic all black when I get it, this company did everything right. Corms was dry and huge. Very impressive. The plant was healthy ready to go in the ground. Getting a variegated banana of this high of quality is hard to come by these days and even though it was not as expected I am still very impressed and still like it very much. I think the price is a tad high for a banana that is not edible.
