Default Does Musa Velutina die after fruiting?

Hi, I live in San Diego and am interested in planting some Musa Velutina plants. I have not grown any bananas before. Does the Musa Velutina mother plant die after it produces fruit? I have heard many banana plants do but I am curious if Musa Velutina does the same. Thank you!

My understanding is that they are one and done, reproducing from seeds.

Just to be clear though a new pup will grow out of the rhizome and produce fruit within the next year again
