Default Mystery Banana

I am fairly new to growing bananas and I have this banana that I don't know what type it is. Can anyone identify it? This banana grows in our greenhouse. Also if anyone is located in Ontario, Canada and wants to trade or sell for a type of banana I don't have I would like to. Pictures are below.

Are you sure its a cavendish, I thought cavendish had red splotches on its leaves when its young, this one has never had anything like that. The guy who I bought it from said it wasnt. The guy said "Its way better than the grocery store bananas, I think its called namwah"

It’s 100% dwarf cavendish. Almost looks like a super dwarf. An older type like Novak. But it’s the conditions I’m sure. The wine spots sometimes don’t appear. On mine I normally don’t see them. Even ignoring everything about the plant that IDs it cavendish. Looking at the flower and bunch makes it very easy to tell it is a dwarf cavendish.

Dwarf namwa has a totally different growth habit and identifiers. I am 100% sure it’s not any Pisang Awak type like dwarf namwa.

You did an amazing job getting fruit in your zone! Honestly a cavendish is much harder than a dwarf namwa to flower! So great job! And the fruit IS different and better than the store nanners! You will see! I’m not sure what it is, but Home grown cavendish is so much better! Stronger flavor, creamy, and amazing. It is still a cavendish and still the cavendish taste but much better! Let them fill all the way! Great job! I am impressed!

Okay, thanks to everyone who replied. I've only ever had grocery store bananas so I am excited to taste a homegrown one. My greenhouse is pretty warm in the high 80s low 90s most days. Sometimes the grocery store bananas are very boring like they are underripe.
