Default Mystery banana at the in-laws...blue java ice cream?

Plant was there when they moved in years ago and my father in-law wants it gone. If this is a real blue java, mama is coming to my backyard. Let me know what you think.

And i'd say no because of the horizontal peduncle. blue java goes straight down

Took a couple more photos. The fruit has the knuckles on the end and there is no red trim on the leaves like my namwah.

Hard to tell precisely from that photo, but appears to be 'Blue Java'.

better photos of the bunch for the color woudl help and a photo of the whole plant with fruit.
BJ is a heavy leaner that I've seen, what's holding it up? Anything?
How tall?
Looks BJ to me too.
need to see the color on the bunch and the whole plant.

Unfortunately, the photo of it fruiting was from two years ago. The plants get support from two big palms and a fence. The bunch in the photo was being supported by an inflorescence from the palm. Fruiting height was 12-15 feet.

Anyway, I decided to go for it. Dug up the sword and the bigger 5ft plant I have pictured above. Planted it between my two "ice cream" plants I bought from local nurseries.

I grow the real Blue Java, in looking at your pics yours seems to grow straight. A strong trait of Blue Java is that it is a heavy leaner, even the small pups lean naturally. That's why at the time of fruiting additional support is important. The fruit has a powder blue cast to it. Although fruiting height seems to vary depending on soil conditions and area. Fruiting seems to happen at 9 to 10 ft here in Texas. I have mine with fruit now and posted some pics about a month ago on Whats Blooming, IF you want a reference.
Good luck with id.
, love mystery nanners!!
Happy growing,
Darla

If you look at the picture of the sword pup, the mother plant it's coming from is at a very hard angle. Also the sword itself was leaning away from where the pic was taken. Here in St. Pete we are considered 9b/10a. Their house is located on the intercoastal so they are 10a.

I actually bought the two nursery "ice creams" knowing they would most likely be namwah. One looks like a dwarf and the other like my friends tall. This plant from my in-laws however just looks different. The p-stem is thick and has more green, petiole color and length are different. It's at home now, middle plant is the mystery.

I have heard both ways with what Blue Java look like as a plant. Sddarkman619 you showed pics of yours and they had red midrib and red around leaf tips. Several bananas I have got mixed up from my friend helping me move. Now not sure which one is ice cream. As I have Dwarf Namwah too...
