  • Abstract : There has been an increased interest in the use and exportation of bananas and their products from the East African region, but the usage and correct nomenclature of cultivars under consideration have always been a problem. This book reviews the existing banana groups and subgroups in their region, explains their synonyms and proposes the way forward in dealing with the nomenclature and classification problems of the bananas. Tables explaining synonyms are included as well as an illustrated guide to the commonest of each group.
