Probably. I bought it with the label 'Musa'.
For the size (1m) I thought that it was this.

That you believe that it can be?

Thank you

Hi Jalon, welcome to this site!
As for the naner on the last pic, I don't think it's basjoo. Basjoo has some red in the midrib, but mostly on smaller, younger leaves. A plant well over 10th leaf didn't show anything like that in my case. I too think it's some other version. Possibly ornamental.

If I ever were to live somewhere happily, your place would maybe be the perfect spot. Beautiful nature, no people. Ideal combination.

Thank you,
This one is my retirement, since I have been employed always at the city (Madrid).
I am in full field, but to 800 m of a nice and small village, with all the services.

Jalon, what a beautiful place you have. (I hope Jack will let me trespass with the European folks for a moment!) Your bananas and palms look great. What was your profession in Madrid?

I think I know what's the point.
In not so distant past we had Universities and other types of Academies
but now every type of academy assumes the name "university"
so for ex; Medical Academy -> Univesity of Medicine
Agricultural academy - > Univesity of Agriculture
Polytechnic -> Univesity of Technology

I deal. In Spain a university can give very diverse specialities. In mine approximately 50 qualifications exists. It is divided in Experimental Sciences, Sciences of the health, Area of economy and social sciences... etc.

I have been employed at the area of experimental sciences. Concretely in the Department of biomathematics and the Faculty of Biological Sciences.

My original formation was mathematical and a doctor in Biological Sciences. My specialities, experimental design and biological models in artificial intelligence (Neural networks, genetic algorithms....).
