Pinwheel Identification

I have some banana plants and one is producing. I read on here that the parent plant dies after fruiting but mine don't. Is there a group that will survive after fruiting? My neighbors has fruit and it is yellowing. Last year his did the same and the trunk collapsed but it only puts on 3 hands of fruit. Mine has 3 hands of bigger fruit and has had it on longer. I will try and post a few pics tomorrow. The fruit from the two plants are very different so they are not the same variety. Thanks for taking the time to read and post your thoughts.

It is a common misunderstanding that bananas die after fruiting, they do not. The shoot that was fruiting will die back, but the plant as a whole will continue to grow and fruit indefinitely by the production of suckers. If you are saying that your fruiting shoot does not die back after fruiting, that would be perhaps because you are not waiting long enough to observe the process. After harvesting a bunch, the shoot that had the bunch can remain alive for awhile longer but will not grow any more leaves, and will eventually die back. There is no type of banana in which the shoot continues to grow and produce more leaves after fruiting.

In some extremely rare cases you can have multiple shoots forming one pseudostem ("trunk"), and it can appear as though the single shoot is continuing to grow after fruiting, but in reality they are different shoots, however I highly doubt you are observing this type of situation.

There is no way to ID your plants without photos, so please post them for an ID attempt.

back in the 80s I bought a house with bananas in the back corner. they grew tall enough you had to cut the stem to get the bunches. I would cut them about 3 to 4 ft. from the ground. the next spring the plant would reproduce from the center. the bananas were excellent and I knew nothing about bananas then. I could not tell you what kind they were but like said they would come back from the center each year after fruiting
