Default Lady Finger. But what type?

I've acquired a 'Lady Finger' type banana, but Iím unsure of specifically which one. It does appear to be a desert finger-type banana. The fruiting parent is in the first picture and pups in the other three pictures. There are pink mid ribs (when young) but that angle doesn't make this obvious. What do you guys think?

Default Re: Lady Finger. But what type?

Do you have any other photos of the fruit bunch? A photo of the whole bunch with the male bud included would help a lot. The name ladyfinger really doesn't mean anything as it is applied to a large number of very different varieties in different parts of the world, and the pink midribs are common on many different varieties.

I don't have any more pictures but I do remember the flower looked similar to the 'Praying Hands' next to it.
