Abstract: Shoot cultures of 401 banana clones were conserved under slow growth conditions (16+/-1 degrees C, 25 mu mol m(-2) s(-1)). Storage duration - defined as 60% survival time of 20 shoot cultures of a clone - averaged 334 days. However, large differences occurred among the different genomic (sub)groups and even within the same (sub)group. East-African highland bananas and non-plantain AAB bananas can be stored for significantly longer periods. Shoot tip cultures of another 41 banana clones conserved at higher ambient temperature (22+/-3 degrees C) needed to be subcultured sooner (every 220 days on average).
