HELP me with my banana plant identity... please

Posted by paty99 z6 NY (My Page) on

Last year I purchased four tissue culture banana plants. I noticed as they grew last year that two of the plants I purchased, a mysore banana and a pitogo banana looked like the same plant. I am assuming I got 2 mysore plants because they both have a reddish pink tint to the underside of their leaves. However there is also a thin red line around the outside of the leaves and in all my recent research I have not seen the mysore plant's leaves described with this thin red line. Can anyone tell me if the mysore has this red rim on its leaves and if not what banana plants do?
Thanks, Pat

My Mysore has leaves with a pinkish underside. The Pitogo does not. The pitogo does have some pink in the leaf stem.
