40-Day Banana 四十日蕉

This is a variety of banana that some locals refer to as the 40-day banana. This is because instead of 90 days, the banana ripens in 40 days. I think it is closely related to the local variety "Pisang Emas" . 40 days? fact or not, I'll know soon enough. I am now planting them in pots to start them off and the new leaves are growing bigger than the previous ones so that is a good sign.
