Default 1 spot banana?

I got these around July but I just now notice the following trait.


Look at the spot in the top of the p-stems leaf.


I call these the sisters.


A view from above


P-stem detail


The whole package



I also got another one from the same patch on the otherside of the house


Same marking




Any idea what type it could be?

I looked around at my other bananas and didn't see anything similar.

Definitely something in the ABB genome group, most likely Namwah or Orinoco. Looks more like Orinoco to me. Could also be Balbisinia. The spots might be due to a mutation or pest of some sort, just a guess. A lot of my plants have black coloration in that area, but it doesn't look like that.

Man Im pissed.. after all this cold weather we had your plants look great. Mean wile I got so much brown its embarising . My Gros Michel look like two big brown sticks. After I cut two pups of them to plant we had the last cold snap and now my pups look really whimpy. Its not supose to be cold this is South Florida.
Those little spots are something I would not worry about. I don't have any repeating spots in my plants but I'm sure if I really looked there's something simular. Most if not all my plants come from TC . When they grow the plants can carry some silly trait but grow and produce fruit. My doubles look terrible . As far as plants go. They are actually kinda ugly . Scrunchy looking weird looking banana plants. They produce even though they are ugly! One of these days im going to Wack them.. Maybe replace them with Williams. So if all you got is those little spots I think your in great shape.

That's a good choice, out of the plants with wine spots the University of Florida lists

Gros Michel as poor cold tolerance.

Williams as fair to good cold tolerance.

Also try some short cycle bananas.

They sure look like Namwah, but your description of the fruit having thick peels doesn't really fit. At least when they are fully ripe (no green, unlike the ones in your photos), the peels are thin.

The petioles are very closed like Orinoco, but, I dunno about the rest.

Wild patch, underwatered ... could result in thick skins. Looks like Namwah or some other cultivar in the ABB group.
