Default 2 unknown bananas

This is the first and they are pretty small.

These are a bit bigger

Both fruited at around 7 feet.
Here's some of what's left of some tall Orinoco just for kicks.

Can you narrow down the options at all? Without more background information or lots more photos of different parts of the plants, it'd be pretty hard to guess what they are. The first ones look a bit Manzano-ish and the second look a bit Namwah-ish, but I wouldn't bet on that.

The first one was sold as ic so that wasn't it. The second was sold as dwarf namwah. What kind of Pics would you like. Like the trunk or leaves? Thanks

It would be helpful to see the petiole canals (whether they are open or closed is very informative), the entire bunch before you removed the male bud, and the male flowers would all be very helpful. One showing each entire plant would be good, too.

From what is visible in the photos, the second plant could certainly be Dwarf Namwah.

I wouldn't bet my life on it, but it has a number of traits that look like Manzano. If it produces thin-skinned bananas that are astringent until very, very ripe, then you'll know for sure.
