Wikipedia Abstract

The Musaceae (/mjuːˈzeɪʃiː/ or /mjuːˈzeɪʃɪ.iː/) are a family of flowering plants, placed in the order Zingiberales. The family is native to the tropics of Africa and Asia. The plants have a large herbaceous growth habit with leaves with overlapping basal sheaths that form a pseudostem making some members appear to be woody trees. In most treatments, the family has two genera, Musa and Ensete. Cultivated bananas are commercially important members of the family.
