Contest! Guess Banana Variety #1
 
The first person to correctly guess the name of the banana cultivar pictured below wins a free banana plant of their choice (including shipping) from a list that includes that particular plant and other varieties I have available to give away at the time.

Here are the contest rules:
http://www.bananas.org/f211/rules-co...ting-2959.html
IMPORTANT!
  • Only one guess per person.
  • "First correct guess" is determined by time recorded on post at bananas.org.
  • If you are taking a "dictionary" approach, consider that I have many more varieties that I sell or have discussed on this site to date.
  • If you have a good working knowledge of the plants at my nursery, then you should exclude yourself from guessing or providing information to others.

Here is a picture of the plant in a 5-gallon pot and a close-up of the under-rib:

I will guess Orinoco!

I am not sure if guessing orinoco covers both tall and dwarf. If I have to be more specific like guessing dwarf or not, I guess I will say D. Orinoco
