Default FHIA18 or SH360?

I had them next to each other during winter storage and one of them died and the labels fell off. Now it is flowering and I think it is FHIA18 because it was always a faster grower and seemed more sturdy but I would like to make sure.
Unfortunately it just flowered and unlikely to ripen before the first frost here which is usually end of November unless I am really lucky.
Can you please help me confirm if it is FHIA or SH?
I have a pup that I will store and I would like to know which one I am storing over winter.

Thanks

/Peter

Kinda looks like sh 3640. FHIA 18 plant wise looks just like FHIA 3 but with a splotchy pstem. Cant hardly tell much on this phone i am using.

When the flower opens, how many petals open at once and how do they open? Do they open flat or curl? 3640 open 2 at a time and they curl up before dropping, plus the male flower is heart shaped.
Hard to tell by flower shape until after a few males open.At this time I would say FHIA 18.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.

3640 also has less curve to the fruit, going from memory...

I can’t see the pstem too well but does it have the dark brown splotches on it? If so then it’s sh-3640. Here is how you tell the fhia-18 from the SH-3640!

Fhia-18 is all reddish green with NO dark brown splotches on the pstem!

The SH-3640 has lots and lots of dark brown/black splotches all up and down the pstem.

The Fhia-03 is easy. It is bright sold green!! No brown/black splotches. Solid green pstem and the base is MASSIVE! hard to miss on the real sweetheart.

If you have more than very minor brown/black splotches on your fhia18 or fhia03 then you are not growing the real deal.

Hope I helped.
Ty
