This is a flower?

I spotted this thing the other day in a little yard behind a taqueria.  At first I didn't have a clue what it was, but as I got closer I recognized it as the flower of the banana tree.  Isn't it amazing?  It looks like something from outer space.

Here's a picture of another one that looks a little more flowerish.

And here's the green fruit.

I really like the looks of these trees.  If we lived here I'd plant one for sure so I could admire the amazing flower and eat the bananas.
