Pinwheel Manzano/Apple? GABE, I NEED YOU! (Photo dump)

There is this place down the road that has a MASSIVE clump of bananas. There are two varieties: Orinoco, and something I think is manzano. They taste like an apple, like an apple banana, and I want you guys to confirm. The only reason I am hesitant to plant it in the yard, is I hate mysteries. They are better than Namwa. They are better than everything


I will be posting these pics on ALL the Facebook banana forums, and see what EVERYONE thinks.


I also noticed the punnacle has little hairs like a Cavendish.

Photo dump:




















































Of course, I needed an seven + foot starter plant


Little, tiny, starter:









It grew two inches in 45 minutes!





Weeeeeel, hope you enjoyed and hopefully give me an ID. Thanks a bunch!

There mostly orinoco. This actually the only other wild variety I have seen.


Thank you! I'll send you some fruit when it fruits!
