Default Gros Michel?

Hi,
I purchased this tree, supposed to be a Gros Michel...it's doing very well.

But the pics of Gros Michels I see don't seem to have this much red on the leaves. Can anyone confirm that I did get sold the correct species?

BTW, your pot is too small. Try a 5-gallon for now.

GM has some light wine staining, yours is likely a Dwarf Cavendish... Welcome to the world of bananas. Nurseries almost all send whatever they want because so few can tell and even fewer care. Buy from reputable members here, Goin bananas in Homestead or get a mystery nana.

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.

Yeah , it is Gros Michel , has longer leaves than DC. Marks will fade very soon when it gets bigger.
