Not aware of genus and species name. But in Kannada called as NENDRA BALLEHANNU.
It has very rich nutritive value.
It grows to the size not less than 10 to 11 inches even in India.
We prepare very nice Halawa of it.

Yes in Kerala it is called Nendrapazham.   The ripe banana is cut into pieces and boiled and eaten.  We make a dish called "Pazham Pori" from it and the unripe bananas are used to make Banana chips.

Regards,

Mani.

Nendrampalam is common in Kerala. The famous Kerala chips are made from the unripe ones of the Nendrampalam. We get them in Tamil Nadu also. The ones we get here are about 9" long.
