Default Mystery Nana...

Does anyone have any idea what kind of banana this could be?....First I got told it was a Bird of they're such smart folks that work there. Next the owner had a brain fart and told me; For the love of me I just can't think of the name, it's a cold hardy one and it starts with a 'c'. I asked could it be a black thai and he said no that wasn't it, he was positive it started with a 'c'. So I began searching...Cardaba is all I came up with and there aren't enough images in this world of a Cardaba for me to I'm still stumped. If anyone can help, I appreciate it, Thanks!

I'd say definitely not Cardaba.

Its hard to see any details, and without a flower its hard to tell, but it actually does look somewhat like the wild species Musa cheesmanii. Its not a very common plant, but it is available out there.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Washington, Hawaii since 2004. Commercial banana farmer, 200+ varieties.
