Welcome to bananas.org.
No, you were not successful in uploading your photos. Try again and possibly you will have to downsize your files in order to be able to upload the photos.

Yes, they are there now. Great bunch of bananas. Congratulations.
They look filled in very well and you can harvest the bunch.
I am not sure about the variety you have there. More photos would be necessary for identification. My first thought was Namwah when I saw the fruits, but the inflorescence does not look like one.
Either way, enjoy your fruits and post some more photos of the p-stem, petiole, fruiting height, leaves, flowers of your follower pups when available.

With that fully covered rachis and short fat bananas poking out in every direction, my money is on Dwarf Brazilian...
I posted your pic for others to see easily...



Keep up the good work. I would start putting some Black Kow cow manure around it and keeping it watered so it will grow to it's potential.
