Default Help identify...

I recently purchased a few banana trees from a local garden nursery, but I don't know what kind they are. Maybe someone can help me identify?

Many thanks in advance. ;-)

Bottom one may be dwarf cavendish, but don't quote me on that.

It isn't possible to identify these with certainty until they fruit, but Dwarf Cavendish or Super Dwarf Cavendish is a good guess for the bottom one. The top one could be any of dozens or hundreds of varieties.

Yeah, bottom one looks like something in the Cavendish family. First one is going to be hard to tell until it fruits.
