Musa monticola
Kinabalu Mountain Banana

This diminutive mountain banana is only known to grow above elevations of 1000 m (3300 ft.) in the mountainous regions of North Sabah, Borneo. The slender, dark mottled pseudostems are only 1 to 2 m (3 to 7 ft.) high. The erect inflorescence produces glossy purple-brown bracts, followed by miniature bananas held in a very dense bunch not much larger than a very large pineapple. The small ripe fruits, but seedy, are very sweet. A rare and local species that should be best suited to the cooler tropics and warm temperate regions with protection from frost, but has apparently not been introduced into cultivation as of yet.
