Default Musa sp. "Rose", what species ???

This banana was recieved from Going Bananas 6 years ago as Musa "Rose". It has slender stems and gets about 6-7 ft tall. The stems have a rosy pink coloring. The fruits are inedible. Is this a species banana or a hybrid?

The dimensions are correct. The leaves should be slender and very erect, There should be some pinkishness in the stem, esp. after pruning off dead leaves, For me, fruit is very small, generally horizontal to the pseudostem, and quite tasty. It also pups like crazy.
