Default Banana+Flower ID please!

Hey y'all,
I'm not really sure how to properly identify a banana, although I have some knowledge of the different varieties...
This is the stand in question.. it's been windy, so the leaves are all torn up, but all structurally fine thankfully.

These are some pictures of what I believe to be the same variety, lighting is a little better too.

Thank you for anyone that can help me!
Much love.

Hi Peacockfurr, it looks like my namwa (which the kind folks on here identified for me a few months back). As for whether it's a dwarf or a tall, I couldn't say. I believe the tall one has a relatively narrow p-stem. I'd guess it's a tall from the narrowness at the top, but that's just a guess. Cheers.

It is not a 'Namwah', looks more like a 'Brazilian', but not 100% on that at this point. As the fruit develops, keep posting photos, and DO NOT REMOVE the male bud below the bunch, it will greatly aid in IDing. Also, please let us know where you are located, this also helps to ID as it greatly narrows down the likely possibilities.

I was told by the owner it's an apple banana, not sure if I completely believe that. I'm in South Florida.
