Default Re: Pinkish orange colored flesh banana

I have a variety that looks like a fat sausage and orange to apricot on the inside, it's known as M. Popoulu. No fruit as yet, but I had the opportunity to pick some unripe fruits from the mother tree. Apparently it can be eaten out of hand when ripe but it's more commonly cooked, being a plantain. A popular variety in Hawaii. Mine, incidentally, came from Tonga.
Currently growing:
M.velutina, M.ornata, M.zebrina, M.sikkimensis, M.basjoo,
M. rajapuri, Blue Java, dwarf red dacca, Williams, Dwarf Chinese plantain (same as dwarf cav?), dwarf cav, super dwarf cav, Choui cau (Senorita), Goldfinger, Pisang ceylan, and Four Tongan varieties I'm working through,one is popoulu. Newly added: Gros michele, lakatan and saba.
