What type of Banana is this?

antonyeoAugust 21, 2006

I grew these bananas from seeds and the labels fell off the pots (use sharpie next time). I don't know what type they are now but need to know. Can anyone identify this banana? I had 3 types of seeds Ensete Glaucum, Ensete ventricosum, and Musa balbisiana so it bound to be one of them. The plant has a little redish coloring on the bottom of the stem but that's the only place. Other than that the plant is all green. Any help would be appreciated.

Here is a link that might be useful:

My guess is Ensete ventricosum.
