Default How soon can I find out true identity of my bananas?

How soon can I actually get the true identity of what I bought. I thought I got what I wanted until last night when I read something on .org about not getting the correct bananas from greenearth co.

I bought 5 bananas from there, goldfinger, manzano, dwarf green, Ca gold, and blue java. He was a nice guy but now from reading post it sounds like you rarely get what you actually buy. I am going to rebuy from a member here to get what I actually want but will continue growing those from him but would like to know what I actually have, but I dont know at what point people can help me identify.

sorry, yep tc. I have both blue java and tall namwa and dwarf namwa. bought 7 ice cream bananas from well spring gardens only to find out they were tall namwa. don't look anything like blue java. but I don't regret getting the namwas, like them better than the blue java. but before you ask, no have not eaten either one. to many frosts last winter or I would have.

done right could probably grow bananas in ohio.
