Acuminata ssp. banksii and ssp. errans–derived cultivated bananas. ‘Pisang Kelat,’ a unique AAB member reported to have a B genome of maternal origin and classified as BAA, is important from a pathological perspective since it is immune to most of the leaf spot diseases and Fusarium wilt (Annual Report, 1999). The Maia Maoli/Popoulu (AAB) group is endemic to Oceania and specifically of Polynesian origin. The group is recognized for its unusually fat and squat fruits with blunt tips, with the Maoli group exhibiting longer fruits.
