It’s pretty obvious that a banane is a banana, but Ray Ventura’s screwy song Vive les bananes! makes it worth mentioning here.
Most of the bananas sold in France come from Guadaloupe and Martinique. The two islands produce a new French organic banana called La Pointe D’Or, to help diversify the crop from the omnipresent Cavendish.
The less sweet banane plantain can fairly common be found as well, in the exotic section the big supermarchés.
