Default Re: can someone confirm this is Pisang Ceylon?

Are the bottoms of the leaves pinkish? Positive ID is difficult when young, but I find it pretty easy to narrow them down by characteristics they lose as they age. PC have a pinkish or light purplish(Depending on what you call it) coloration on the bottom of the leaves, especially noticeable when unfolding. (Either that or my PC is not a PC.) If it is any consolation, from what I see, it seems to look like a PC to me. There is no way to be certain from that picture, though.
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

It's coming up to that time of year...

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
