Found this plantain growing in an abandoned lot. Any ideas what variety it might be?

Hi John!



How are you doing buddy!....I haven’t talk to you for a while!....It looks like Musa Congo 300 Plantain to me!....The “bid daddy” of Musa Plantain Varieties!....Originally from Africa!....Congo 300 has been used to create other Plantain Varieties, like the Puerto Rican own/native Maricongo Plantain!...

Maricongo is composed by two words.....
Mari = surrounded by sea, created in the island of Puerto Rico....
Congo = in memory of the original “big daddy” Plantain!.....



I want one!...Save me a pup!....Hopefully it helps!....

What’s up John!! Hope all is good down in paradise!

Looks to be either a Musa Congo like Hector said or even a tall superplantain! For sure a french type bunch! The French types are my favorites and very productive for me!

Hey TY, happy new year. All is well here and the drought finally ended. Got a bunch of pups from this mat now and have one for you. Also have a bunch of others to send to you but two attempts and can't get them out. Not as easy as i thought.

Occasionally, a regular plantain will revert to a french type plantain. I had one on the farm for years, I think I must have lost it in Matthew or Irma, because I haven't seen it in a while.
