Default Texas back roads id help?

Hope you guys don't get tired of me posting my finds. I travel Texas back roads helping people with final expense and life insurance and i put over 200 miles on my car day. Over the years i have bought cars, went metal detecting, and collected many unusual plants over the years and now bananas!

Todays road trip takes me to the small town of Tarkington, if you blink you have missed it, lol. Anyway i came across a mass of bananas about 13 to 15ft. Leaves are very wide and are a darker more vibrant green then yesterdays find. any thoughts. I thought the property was vacant but found a very elderly home owner. She was nice and allowed me to take one. She stated they were put in by her deceased husband, he liked to order out of catalogs, she has no idea what verity.

3 pics posted one is the plant i took home. Any thoughts guys?

thanks bunches,
