OK, so my neighbor said I could take as many of his banana pups as I wanted (I took 3) - but he doesn't know what kind it is.

Can any of you gurus tell what type this is? (please let me know if you'd like to see a picture of a specific part of the plant)

MAMA: (the first picture is showing where the fruit stalk is coming out at about 12 feet high)

PUPS:

Thanks for looking! -Dan

looks like it may be Orinoco

Ditto, Orinocco is most likely, though 1780 and Malango fruit look very similar.
