Definitely not. Namwah perhaps?

Ya, some type of Pisang Awak/Namwah (ABB).

'Monkey Fingers' is a bit ambiguous, generally seems to refer to normal 'Pisang Jari Buaya' (literally "crocodile fingers banana"), but there is also another similar, but distinct AA type in the trade called 'Monkey Fingers' sometimes.

Coincidentally perhaps, I ran across a Pisang Awak in the Solomon Islands which went by the name 'Vuchi Mangimangi', which meant "monkey banana".

I have the dwarf ducasse / dwarf namwah. I might label this pisang awak for now to avoid confusion. It will be more precise than monkey finger.
