The question mark ("?") stands for the city, not the country ...

Never heard of such banana. European dealers and traders tend to change the names of cultivars to make it sound better.
For instance, what I bought:
Musa Picolo - it turned out to be Musa 'Super Dwarf Cavendish'
Musa tropicana - Musa 'Dwarf Cavendish' (red flecks/spots on juveniles)
Musa Miska - Musa 'Dwarf Cavendish', however with strange blue like pigmentation, will post pics, when full color appears... (spots/flecks on juvenile were light blue)

and so on... I've already seen Musa chinensis , Musa basallica, Musa SuperGrow... not a big deal...
Probably a basjoo or sikkimensis, if he cant give you another info.
Thnx to Marcel, Ante, Dr. Chiranjit Parmar and Francesco for the plants I've received.
