Default Highgate vs Gros Michel

Is there an obvious visual difference between these two when they are still small?

How can you tell which one you have?

Hi,
So I have a normal gros Michel but from what I know the difference is little to none. The height of the plant changed and I think the fruit tastes better but idk anything else. There maybe more than this. But my normal gros Michel is pretty neat

well first it would help if you bought one of each
after that is established then bananas which are named dwarf have a shorter appearance
at flowering and look a bit more compact and dwarfed compared to the tall version
