Blossom of a banana tree in Turkey.
Seen at a trip to turkey
Thanks both for the ID (and the background)
Yes, Musa sp.
Wow, thanks for that great information. Then it´s an sp., i guess.
Most of the bananas in Turkey would be Musa acuminata (cultivate Grand Nain) and Musa x paradisiaca (cultivate Dwarf Cavendish). But with all these cultivate and hybrid forms it is quite tricky to get an overview about all these species. The first bananas were introduced in Turkey about 1920 from Egypt.
Thank you very much. As I read, there are two subspecies, any idea about that one?
yes, that's a banana. Great shot!
