I agree with Gabe. I am not getting "Thomsonii Vibes" here. The regular sikkimensis doesn't have that heavy wax-deposit. I also noticed the leaf-shapes looking like typical balbisiana, wich don't resemble sikkimensis at all. The fruit & flower looks identical to that I have seen of sikkimensis. But it looks very much like my musa helens. Could also be Musa sikkimensisX "Darjeeling giant" wich apparently is a hybrid between sikkimensis and balbisiana.
