Banana Trees
Q.

type of banana plant

Zone Cotacachi, Ecuador | Wendyecuador added on May 11, 2019 | Answered

the plant on the photos got so heavy it fell over. we always assumed it only had the flower and no fruit. But the surprise was huge when we saw a large ring of fruit at the top of the flower stem. Does anyone know what type of banana plant this is? the seeds are very large and the fruit is literally filled up with seed.

There are some 500 varieties of Banana Trees.
I believe your images show a tree in the red subgroup of Banana.
