The present investigation on Intraclonal variation in Musa (AAB) ‘Palayankodan’ was conducted at Instructional Farm, College of Agriculture, Vellayani, Thiruvananthapuram with assessing the performance of different palayankodan ecotypes with respect to growth, yield and quality was aimed at. The present study results revealed that Vellapalayankodan recorded the highest values in the vegetative traits like plant height (417.2 cm), pseudostem girth (96.10 cm), number of suckers per plant (15.8), days taken for planting to shooting (300 days), days taken for shooting to harvest (107 days) and total crop duration (407 days) and yield characters like bunch weight (23.0 kg), number of hands per bunch (14.6), number of fingers per bunch (254.2), number of fingers per hand (18.9) and finger traits like finger length (13.1 cm). The other intraclones namely Motta Pooovan and PKNNR also needs further evaluation. The present study it was concluded that Vellapalayankodan recorded the highest values in all the vegetative, bunch, fingers and quality traits and also it is highly suitable for Kerala condition.
