Default What kind of banana is this?

Can anyone tell me what kind of banana tree this is? It's a fast grower (up from a root ball this spring after I cut it down last fall).

Whole plant...

Not sure, but it look like Belle to me. Looks just like mine, except your leaves are larger.
Nice looking banana plant.

I think its much too generic looking to give any positive IDs at this point. Just going to have to wait until it flowers to get any ID.
