The Pome subgroup (genome group AAB) comprises cultivars whose fruit have a sub-acid and apple-like taste. They are often refered to as apple bananas, thereby confusing them with Silk bananas, which are the more widely recognized apple bananas.
Pome cultivars are common in India and Brazil (where the subgroup is known as Prata). In Australia, the Pome cultivar 'Pacha Nadan' is marketed under the name Lady Finger1 .
The fruit bunch develops at an angle while the rachis points vertically down. The fruit apex is often bottlenecked.
