Default Banana mystery

Hey guys, I got a praying hands from a very reputable source here in Florida but clearly it is not as was sold. Any idea on this one? The pseudostem is probably 12 to 15 inches and is eat least 15-18 feet tall. Attached is a pic of the bunch developing (about a month)

Looks like a Maoli of some sort perhaps, leave the male bud (purple thing) on for aiding precise ID as it develops. Also post some photos of the bunch from a bit further back showing the whole thing including the "neck" of the plant where the bunch is emerging from the leaves and where the leaves come into form the pseudostem, as well as one of the entire plant.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.
