High-resolution photos of Musa textilis:
I am supervising an undergraduate research project centered in the expedition that David Fairchild made to Mesoamerica in 1944. During this trip he encountered and made photos of Musa textilis in Honduras. We are writing a paper (to be submitted to Huntia) focused on his findings and would like to know if any member of the Eflora India Group has a photo of a plant of this species with fruits that could kindly share with us.
Coral and I very much appreciate your help and time with this query.
