I transplanted a pup from one of my tall namwas (14'+ with 300 finger bunch) to my Mother's yard in Spring 2018. A marginal location and not much attention results in a 7' plant with 40 fingers.

Looks like Orinoco, though a little early to say definitely.

My Double Mahoi just started blooming last week. PRobably too late in the year to get any fruit, but fingers crossed!
I'll post pics once the raceme(s) emerge

Beautiful pictures....the banana plant is the most amazing and beautiful plant I've seen. Us Northern people have never seen a banana plant/flower grow...until I acquired one 3 years ago....has been an interesting adventure seeing them grow and I have been lucky to have one flower and bear bananas this year. This site has given me valuable information.....love seeing all the pictures.

Happy growing,
