Default What type of banana trees do I have?

I am trying to determine what kind of banana trees I have growing in my yard. I live in the greater Houston, TX area and the trees were there when I bought the house. Please see the pictures below.

Thanks!

Looks just like my Orinoco. They are very popular and all around Houston. I live about 3 hours northeast of you. They seem to grow really well around here. I like the taste of them best when they are very ripe and the skins/peel is brown. Even though it's brown the banana inside will still be fine and not rotton like a common brown skinned grocery store cavendish. Or you can use them like a plantain when they are green/starting to yellow.
