Primary topic[edit]

I do not accept that "Plantain" is a primary topic. As the disambiguation page states, it refers to two distinct, although overlapping topics: (1) all cultivars of Musa (i.e. "bananas" in the broad sense) intended for cooking, and (2) a particular group of cultivars in the AAB genome group. It happens that in most countries where bananas are not grown only cultivars in the intersection of (1) and (2) are known, so the two topics are confused, but that does not mean that they are not distinct.
