Default Con firm this ice cream and one mystery

First, this is supposedly and ice cream banana. We are just hoping to confirm this.




This second plant was given to my dad with out any information. Any light you guys can shed on it would be great. It's the one in the foreground. Background is another ice cream.

I can't tell 100%. The ice cream looks more like an ice cream than a namwa.

The other I can't confirm either but my best guess would be a tall Orinoco.

When they flower you will be able to confirm 100% what they are.

Those varieties are too similar in appearance at this stage to easily tell them apart or ID them if they are something else that also looks similar. You'll have to wait until they flower, then we can be sure. When a banana flowers, it's showing its face, and we can really see what it is as so many plants are very similar until they flower.

Thanks everyone. He lost all of the mature plants Inc a hurricane last fall, so all of these started as pups around january I think. May not flower for a while. I'll try again when they do.

Do you remember his original source for the original plant? That may help.

The ice cream were from a local nursery in titusville, or maybe Mims. The other one was given to him by someone else that knew nothing about it.
