Probably a var of Musa Ornata
For instance, I recently got a "Royal Purple" Musa Ornata.

I planted this Musa 'Royal Red' out this Spring as a 4 inch plant. I don't think that the fruit is edible, as it is an ornamental hybrid, probably of ornata.





I don't know how hardy it is, so I plan on digging and storing this one for the Winter.
