This plant was given to me and has grown well this summer. I would really like to know what variety it is so I can figure out how to take care of it this winter.

It does kinda look like 'Orinoco', but does not appear stocky enough to be the dwarf and something else doesn't look quite right to me. Keep posting more photos of the bunch as it develops, and do not remove the male bud (it will make it much easier to ID if it is left on).

Just a guess the leaves look pretty wide for Orinoco and that's a fat bud. Maybe Rajapuri ?

I have other pictures posted in my gallery but I can't seem to get them posted in my messsage. Must be doing something wrong I can only get one picture to post in messsage. Maybe you could look at my gallery pictures and give an opinion. Thanks. lindylu57
