Could it be Rasthali which I understand is a type similar to Brazilian or manzano?

The bunch does look kinda horizontal.

Thanks for the pics and congrats on the bunch!

Here an updated picture to how the bunches are doing.


The second tree (of the same variety) put out a bunch as well.

They are a type of Pome banana, similar to common ‘Brazilian’. The only other common Pome bananas in the US are ‘Dwarf Brazilian’ and ‘Raja Puri’, but there are many more from India, hard to say exactly which one you may have. It is not ‘Rasthali’ though as that is a Silk subgroup banana, or 'Mysore'/'Pisang Ceylon' which is a different subgroup as well, whereas yours is Pome subgroup.

Do you know where exactly in India it came from?

I believe both of these came from Kerala.

"Banana 1" is a lot more sturdy. I haven't tasted the fruit yet.

"Banana 2" taste (to my untrained pallet) more like a "apple banana" as it has a decent amount of tart to it.

I got rid of the "banana 2" mat after the hurricane mainly due to it not being sturdy.
Then I realized I was the only source of this since the guy I got it from got rid of it too when reorganizing his yard. (He wants to replant it though)
I managed to track down an alive tossed pup and just planted it.

Hopefully some of "banana 1" fruit is ready in January. If anyone is the neighborhood and wants a pup or wants to try a fruit your more then welcome.

Now with a better id I will plant it next to my Brazilian for a side by side compare.

Here a few more pictures from this morning.
I removed the male bud from both hoping to see how fast I can get the fruit.
Then I realize this would adversely affect IDing these...sorry

First Bunch




Second Bunch



Pups




Is there any other types of picture that would help narrow this down?
Ripe or full fruit?
