Help me identify this Banana please
 
First of all, I've been lurking here for months and finally decided to register, you guys have been doing a fantastic job so thank you all.

I got this Banana almost a year ago from a local farmer here when it was still very young, it's grown some but it's still rather small for a banana. I would love if you guys can help me identify it.


I apologize for the quality.

most members here will agree with me on this...really hard to say, until it flowers then much easier to tell.

Interesting, I actually didn't know that, I hope I'll update this thread with some flower pics soon. Thank you for your help Kubali.

Looks to be an AAB type, possibly a Mysore. I have only one document referencing the bananas of Oman, but it is not very detailed. Have you noticed on the young new leaves, as they are unrolling, is the color of the exposed surface of the young unrolling leaf green, or reddish?

This is a a new leaf that just unrolled


I can't really say they have any red color on them

Is there any color on the backside? I meant when they are still rolled up, in their “cigar leaf” stage.

I'm seeing another leaf just starting to push through, I'll take some photos in a few days. As far as the backside I can't see any shade of red there as well.

A year or so later, it finally flowered and I got an update for you banana experts :D






Hopefully, this will make it easier to identify, thanks a lot :)

Sometimes I've seen more coloration, sometimes less. And sometimes only when the new leaf is emerging.
