Musa itinerans ‘Burmese Blue’ or blue banana is a variety of Musa itinerans formerly associated with Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana and is sometimes confused with Musa itinerans var. Guangdongensis. However, it makes suckers that grow far from the plant while Musa itinerans var. Guangdongensis produces suckers that grow close to the mother plant.

It is quite small and has a beautiful golden yellow trunk.

The leaves are slightly pleated, slightly burgundy or purple at the bottom, darker burgundy or purple on the midrib when the leaves are young.

The bracts of the flowers are blue to purple.

The fruits appear per group of 14 to 16 bananas, 15 to 20 cm long, with a pinkish-purple appearance that gives them an iridescente blue color. They contain a lot of seed and are used as a cooking banana in Thai cuisine.

The beautiful inflorescence and fruits as well as the rapid growth make this banana a desirable species.
