Default Dwarf Banana Requires Identification

This plant was originally planted mid July 2019 and flowered at approximately 4' of pstem in late April 2020. I trimmed back about 6-8" of pstem in order to help the new leaves emerge after winter (looked like it was choking). Took forever for the flower to emerge and this week it finally began to open. The female flowers have a very deep purplish red and are quite beautiful in comparison to my beige colored namwa flowers.

Please ID the following plant. Thanks!

I thought you said it was raja puri! If you think it isn't, then maybe dwarf orinoco?

The guy who gave it to me had it labeled as Raja Puri. The female flowers make me think it is something else. It looks like dwarf Orinoco to me based on photos but Iíve never seen one live and in person. I think my dwarf Brazilian may be a dwarf Orinoco too. One DO is great but two is too many.

Thanks for your consideration!
