I took this one a little while ago, a orinoco maybe? I would like to try and get a pup off it. This banana is growing in 95367. Maybe cause we had a real weak winter.

I may be wrong but the bud does not look pointed enough for Orinoco.Does Orinoco have persistent Thingamajigs ? Mud flaps

With my Orinocos the flower Bracts(flaps) fall off, and the male flowers fall off.

Looks like a wild balbisiana to me. Doesn't produce edible fruit, but is a hardy ornamental.

Definitely balbisiana, not an edible banana.
