Default Contest! Guess Banana Variety #3

About the banana plant -
  • It is a fruiting hybrid, not a Musa species.
  • It is listed in the Bananas.org Wiki.
  • It is in a 15-gallon pot, the pot is 18 inches (46 cm) tall.
The first person to correctly guess the name of this banana cultivar pictured below wins a free 2-gallon size banana plant of their choice (including shipping to most countries) from a list that includes that particular variety and others I have available to give away at the time.

Here are the contest rules:

Congrats Ante, it will be interesting to see what you get and if it makes it. I assume Richard will take all the necessary steps so hopefully that bunch of plant thugs you have over there let it through!
