… , nice shot. But regarding species ID, I think it is Musa aurantiaca Baker, M. sikkimensis is entirely different one.


Thanks for your comments! I may be wrong but my plant also not completely matching with the description of M. aurantiaca. There are differences in habit, leaf characters, petiole size, inflorescence characters and bracts. Attaching a PDF and some more pictures for your kind perusal. Hope we can find its correct identity.

It is Musa aurantica for sure.
I got the confirmation from Prof. M. Sabu (Presently revising the family Musaceae in India)


It is M. aurantiaca
