Default Drought hardy banana in Michoacan.

I spotted this burro banana(?) on the Michoacan/Jalisco border near a town whose entire population just made cantera(rock) carvings. This area is probally around 3,000ft, and it is just on the eastern edge of the famous blue tequilla agave growing area. This area is kinda like the napa valley of mexico, but instead of grapes it's blue agave, planted in rows as far as you can see. They have a mesmirizing effect when driving and seeing row after row.

Here's a nice field just on the outskirts of town.

And here's a clump less than a mile away.

Here's a closer up shot of it. What amazed me was that it was fruiting at the end of the 8-9 month(or more) dry season. This type seemed pretty common in the area.
