Hello banana fans! I just picked these up at my local Wal-Mart for $12.88 and I am just interested in what kind of Banana's I got here. As you can see in the picture below it's just entitled "Banana Musa"..

Thanks!

I got lucky and got the last one that had two (2) plants with it.

And here's the lousy description that Wal-Mart gives customers when they buy plants.

if it has any reddish blotches then yes that is most likely Dwarf Cavendish. I think I do see a bit of red that would indicate that. It will more obvious as it ages and you can get it some sun.
