Default Bananas near Sargent, TX. Orinoco?

I'm new here, so bear with me. I just posted some pictures in my gallery of bananas growing near Sargent, TX about 2 miles from the Gulf. Are they Orinoco? What close-up pictures would I need to take to be able to make a positive ID?

Based on the pictures and your location, they definitely look to be Orinoco, which is very common along the Gulf Coast. The fruit looks very angular which strongly points to Orinoco.
