Yes it is just Musa ingens from New Guinea and they are quite large being around 60ft at times and having thick trunks,big leaves and big fruit bunches.

The two domesticated Musas and their hybrids are the only seedless ones. Native wild banana species in my neck of the woods are loaded with shotgun pellets that you can rake your teeth over for the veneer of flesh.
