    I humbly submit this photo of the inflorescence of Musa 'Iholena Lele' ABB, which is currently inflorescing on my own plant. 'Iholena Lele' is one of the Polynesian cultivars noted for having coppery inferior leaf surfaces, and triangular yellow fruits with pink flesh and a distinct citrus flavour.

    This particular plant is notable for growing at 2,850 meters above sea level, well above the established altitude zones for bananas and plantains.
