KISUKARI USI NI GUSE (and not KISUKARI USINIGUSE) doesn't come from Usambara but from KILIMANJARO region, more precisely from ONGOMA VILLAGE, URU NORTH, MOSHI DISTRICT (cf Tanzania Musa Expedition 2001 report, De Langhe et al.) In this report the accession is tentatively classified as 'edible AA' but it was later measured as triploid. Our SSR analysis (to appear) shows it as a AAB, probably a Silk. It cannot be written in the front page: Taxonomic classification: Musa>Eumusa>AA. I suggest: Taxonomic classification: Musa>Eumusa>AAB
