Is it with seeds? if seeds are there it may be Musa acuminata cultivar. If with seeds it may be Musa acuminata variety wild.

Thank you very much. I think this banana has small seeds in the middle. Attachments (1)

This could be a species of Musa acuminata ssp. zebrina. There are varieties in this sub-species. Please check.
