They're probably Orinoco, which is edible. Can you get a picture of the mother plant with flower bud and fruit?

Orinoco is a banana that can be used for cooking, not a plantain.

Orinoco is one of the most commonly grown banana varieties in Florida so I agree with Andreas that it's likely that. Also, it is used as a cooking banana (baked, boiled, fried, etc before ripening) but it can also be used as a desert banana if allowed to ripen. Excited to see those pics

It's pretty good as a dessert banana. Nice sub-acid taste.
