Default Re: Musa ingens and other large bananas

You must be referring to M. itinerans, not M. ingens, for the plants you dug from the mountain. They are totally different species. Some varieties can get quite large, but they can also run underground and make suckers very far away, so be careful where you plant it.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Washington, Hawaii since 2004. Commercial banana farmer, 200+ varieties.
