This is a very old cultivar which is in question as to what it really is. I can't find any info on it and it went off at the same time as the Gros Michel. I found it in an Orang Asli village. Could it be the GM?

I remember Gros Michael bananas, when I was very young. When they stopped showing up in the stores we were informed of the banana disease. Gros Michael was large and tasty!

This pic reminded me of a discovery my Army buddy and I made somewhere in Phouc Lam province in South Viet Nam. In the middle of nowhere special, we found a big pepper bush right in the middle of a little used trail. Man, we ripped it apart and pockeded all the little red peppers. Didn't care what the name was like we do today, yuk, yuk. They were unbelievably hot. Used them to improve our C-rations and LRRP rations until they got too rotten. No one else in the platoon wanted to partake. Too bad for them. Never had a problem with irregularity during my time in country. Took my pills too - no malaria either.

It does look like Gros Michel, it could be a form of it.
