It looks like a Bluggoe subgroup member, an ABB, but not the common 'Orinoco' of the USA. It looks to be something that is not in the US.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.

Thanks, Gabe, for your comment.

It is said that for hundreds years it has been transplanted to a southern
island of Japan from a country of south east asia.
Despite that it stood there for some hundred years, no name from which
the species cold be guessed has been told. You are right in the sence that
this banana is something different from that of USA.
Considering from its cold hardiness, it should be something like ABB as you

Mine didn't have much taste they were kind of bland. I don't think they had fully matured and having to place them under the house right after it started to flower probably had something to do with it. My Koi liked them though. I normally put a plant or two in the pond each spring and they love to root around and suck on the new roots as they emerge out of the clay they are potted in. The plants don't seem mind and they grow well in the naturally fertilized water the fish live in and it saves on water because I don't have to make as many water changes as I normally would. Its a win win for everybody.

Thanks for your post and it was nice to chat with you.

I have given many of these plants to people that do take on the responsibility just like any other living thing and they care for them and over the years do what it takes to keep them coming back year after year. It takes a lot of work to keep and maintain these plants year after year and now I am careful about who I even give them to for fear they don't share my same enthusiasm as I do.
Ah, you feel about your bananas pretty much the same as I do about my 'chids. I'd sooner give one to a person I'm sure will keep it alive, than sell one and have it meet an early demise.

Now, if I had a 'nanner I wanted to figure out what it probably was, I'd do a little looking on-line and learn what some of the characteristics of the different common banana species were, and then see how they compare with mine.

In other words - I'd be doin' some sleuthin' then some surmisin' and guesstamatin'

(you post didn't seem cranky, to me. Sometimes I come off as rather 'highfalootin' and 'lackadasical' about some things when folks don't see the point I'm trying to make )
