Default Banana Identification

Hello to Everybody !

I'm a new member in the Forum from Italy.

Is there any member that can identify the Musa in the attached picture ?






It is about 4 meter high (13 feet).

It has a quite large and srong stem.

It seems to be very hardy as it doesnt get damaged during winter time.

It got a bit below 0 ºC 32 ºF ( for 1 day ) with no damages.

It is proucing Bananas at the moment so hopefully this can help identification.

I Thank You all in advance.
