We put our self into groups we call race,where as for banana and other fauna we call variety. Pisang tanduk is a variety that produce the longest banana, sometimes reaching a foot long. Pisang emas is almost the opposite, small yet sweet.
I am yet to see how pisang emas will end up in our garden. Its Zila again, giving 5 pisang emas seedlings a few monts back. I wonder if I will be able to see them fruiting, because by October this year, we will shift to our retirement home in Seri Iskandar. Zila did mention about pisang emas requiring 9 months to mature.
