Default Blue Java? Need help to Identify this one

Hi, I was told this is blue Java and was sold by a nursery in Phoenix, This fruited like when its 7 feet tall and wanted to confirm if its really blue Java. Thanks. I was told in local Phoenix backyard banana growers to post the pics here and GABE would help answer if this is real blue Java or mislabled. The small fruits got frost bite, I am planning to cover it with froat cloth now. Thanks

Definitely not Blue Java, but also not Namwah which it is typically mixed up with. Looks more like Dwarf Brazilian, but with some odd traits, could just be a tissue culture off-type, or the result of growing in less than ideal conditions.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Washington, Hawaii since 2004. Commercial banana farmer, 200+ varieties.
