Re: Banana Identification
Yes, there is a taller version that is common, but it is normally just called 'Orinoco'. And its not a plantain, no matter how good it tastes cooked, it will never be a plantain. The subgroup (which is a genetic group of bananas which are have the same evolutionary origin) this banana is in is called Bluggoe, with an ABB genome. Plantain is a different subgroup, and has an AAB genome, and although they are normally cooked, there are many bananas which are also commonly cooked that are not in the plantain subgroup. Plantain is not synonymous with cooking banana.
