Default Roadside Treasure

Just uploaded some pictures of this mystery into my gallery. I was driving past a house I knew had an impressive stand of bananas, and some unfriendly dogs, which have prevented me from asking any questions. There were several large pups lying beside the road, so I stopped and picked through them and took the 4 best home with me. Two of them had rather large corms attached, bigger than a football. One put up two pups immediately after I planted it and the other has grown twice as fast as my other bananas. I planted them in April, and the banana in my gallery has at least doubled in size since then. Anyone have any ideas? Any identifying traits I should be looking for? I'm very curious to find out what I may have picked up. All the pictures are of a single banana plant. I'm assuming they're all the same variety, but maybe not. I'll take pictures of the rest if anyone can help me identify this one

Hey thanks for posting those for me! Yeah, sorry they're sideways. Sometimes it helps to look at things from a different perspective

Humm ... let me try.


They grow sideways;

Bottom leaves are variegated with yellow;
Pstems are green with very little/no other color;
They stand about 3 to 4 ft tall ... These are midgets or not grown;


*** They are bananas and we need about 9 more months to figure this out.

So you'd need to see the flower or actual bananas in order to make an ID? This is my first time growing so I may be overeager
