Default Finally fruits so time to get ID on this mystery Banana or Plantain...

8ft. high at crown when flowered. About 7.5 inches wide at base.

Hated the low flood prone area its in, late last summer was wet there (fhaia-03 next to it didn't mind the wet, but this one had some gnarly looking leaves after it had wet feet a few days in a row)

Lots of pups poking out but most stalled after coming out of the ground, only a couple out of the 10 sticking up kept going to put off a full leaf or 2. Majority stuck out 1-6 inches and stopped growing.

lots of the black speckles. Both red and green colors in Pstem. Leaves are very upright, not much drooping until they were browning up and drying out.

The rack seems to have only 4 hands of females and just today a male hand was visible for picture. Fingers seem pretty long right off that bat (pic of my hand next to them i have long fingers i'm 6'2" tall).

If any expert has the time to describe the characteristic used to ID please do, i'd like to be able to ID them better myself.. (how to narrow it down to a group, then variety etc...) If not no biggie, as always the knowledge here is SO MUCH appreciated!!

Anyone? I researched and searched to use characteristics to narrow it down but nothing stuck out as a positive ID for myself. Are posted pics to big? maybe some people aren't seeing them because they take to long to load??

Im leaning towards ‘FHIA-17’, but not 100% sure on that yet, will have to cross check with my photo files later.
