Pisang Awak (= Namwah, Ducasse) is a favourite dessert cultivar from SE Asia, now grown worldwide. Its main features are (1) plant hardiness to drought, wind, cold and diseases (2) spectacular flavour with creamy texture. Few drawbacks are known. This is the dwarf clone known as Namwah Kohm.
We ship a stout rooted sucker, not a potted plant. You will receive it with the corm wrapped in a bag with moist sphagnum or perlite.
In spring, suckers may not have roots. In this case, suckers are easy to root if temperatures are kept between 20 and 30 C.
