From a distant it looks like it but can not be sure without a flower. I've grown DB and fruited and harvested before but I am not an expert.

Well I guess it depends on how big your greenhouse is. It's about 10 or 11ft. to the top of the leaves. Maybe a dwarf ladyfinger or Super Dwarf would be a better choice.
