We first saw this raving beauty when visiting Thailand in 2005. At great expense (we're still driving old vehicles), we procured one to bring home, named it 'Siam Ruby', and are thrilled to share it with folks here in the states. Our research indicated it originated in Papua New Guinea as a sport of Musa 'Tapo', where bananas have been cultivated for 10,000 years. We have never seen it taller than 8', so that's our guess for height. The leaves are a stunning, dark ruby red with tiny green flecks...the more sun, the more intense the color. This is one banana that loves intense heat and humidity...dazzling, stunning...can you tell we've lost our adjectiveness over this plant?
