What type of banana plant is this. I live in Norcross, and notice I have a bloom. Will the fruit be edible?

    I am no banana expert, so I don’t know what variety you have.
    I have grown ornamental bananas that had pink flowers but the fruit had so many seeds you wouldn’t want to eat it.

    Maybe the ornamental hardy banana/Japanese banana (Musa basjoo). Check out the included link for more information. Best wishes!
