Default ID Help: Bananas in Salto, Uruguay

I received photos of the parent plants of the banana I was given a few months back. My plants (their offspring) are still very young.


Thanks in advance for ID thoughts, the folks who gave me the pups are also interested in knowing which type they are. If geographical referencing helps - Salto, UY is near the river border with Argentina.

I've asked the folks that gave me the banana what the fruit tastes and looks like on the inside, in case that might help people take a stab at identifying it.
****************
Danilo and Dahiana (banana owners) reported that: "The flavor is very sweet and tasty. I didn't know bananas could have seeds, I have not seen them. The skin is very thin. We will get you one in the near future."

A bit hard to tell from the photos, the angles and lighting are a bit challenging, but looks to me like a type of Silk. Some common names for plants in this group include ‘Apple’, ‘Manzano’ and ‘Silk Fig’.

Okay! Thanks for the feedback.


That gives me something to go on for personal research... I needed a starting point, there seemed, to me, to be so many possibilities and searching for Uruguay Banana types isn't helpful, not enough documentation from here.

I'll ask Danilo & Dahiana to get more photos of the family.
