Default Not Praying Hands

I think we all will agree this is not praying hands. Does anyone have any idea what banana plant this is? The plant is about 14' tall. The underside of the leaves are green. I took some additional pictures of the bananas and some looked Fused together. Weird looking fruit.







Thanks Susan

I have never been able to see any photos in the forums ever on any device while logged in. Not even profile photos. Requires me to download if from this site. If I am logged out I see everything just fine. My phones have tons of photos from this site since it requires me to download. I found putting links to my Flickr page much easier.

I was first thinking perhaps 'Raja Puri, but the female flower color is wrong, should have a lot of purple/red in them for that, and the bunch is too pendant. Kind of looking like a 'Pisang Raja' at this point, but not super confident on that, keep posting photos as the fruit fills out, it should become more clear.
