Wild Banana

This is a wild banana plant! [so please do not remove this, unless if somebody can prove that this banana species has been cultivated widely in other part of the world. In Indonesia, this species is found in natural forest]

One interesting morphological feature of this species is its inflorescence pointing straight upward while most of cultivated banana species are pointing downward after fruits are developed. Red fruit skin color is not a sign of ripeness, it is red naturally from start of fruit development.
