Re: was my past banana a basjoo?
Sounds more like it was a Cavendish type. I've seen vendors sell Cavendish as basjoo before as well. I don't know if they don't know the difference, don't care, or maybe they are just selling it as what they received it as. To my knowledge, however, basjoo does not have the reddish markings on young leaves.
