i learned about this a few years back, wanted to get one so bad but then found out it was isolated on an island with cannibal tribesmen.

I don't think that fruit matches the plant though.

This video is crap, almost all of the intro text is not true, and none of the fruit photos at the end are M. ingens, its all cultivars, mostly Plantains, some others, and even one stolen from me.

interesting video, however, the plant doesn't look real. I see that it is real and grows in New Guinea. Thanks for sharing.
