Default Maui banana???

I was in Maui in November and brought home a pup. Does anyone have an idea as to what the variety may be?


Thank you,

Andrew

Looks like it could be 'Orinoco', the form I've seen in Hawai'i (usually called 'Largo') may differ a little from the common one on the mainland, I haven't seen both of them enough up close to say how different they may or may not be though. But since the bunch is undeveloped and not a good close up I dont want to say that its for sure, do you have any other photos, maybe some of developed fruit?

Hello Gabe,

Unfortunately this is the only picture. I have dwarf Orinoco growing here and the Maui plants were much taller. The pup is growing fast. Would a picture of it help?

Thanks so much,

The pup photo wont help much. Orinoco is much taller than Dwarf Orinoco, so it could still be a possibility.
