This mat is in a Ft Pierce Garden Society's members back yard zone 10-11 coastal.
The small mat has produced fruit in the past and is 10+years old.
Homeowner says the fruit is nice and sweet
The mat is in a clump 4x5.
Locally dwarf varieties are sold at better nurseries.
Homeowner does not have photos of fruit.
Plants are 5-7 ft tall with the 5 footer tossing a 13+inch flower.
Bracts are not open yet.
Here are some photos.
Never mind my handbag..
Thanks in advance for your answers

Short stout growth with a near dwarf habit in the top along with wide leaves and sweet fruit... I am going to go with 3640....
It seems a bit short for that, though... Just a guess.
No red, either. It's nothing I am familiar with, although it looks similar to 3640 in growth but not color or height. Mine fruited at 8 ft. and looks similar to GM in coloring. (Red on the petioles, etc.)
Wide leaves, though. (I am thinking in print here.) Not 3640.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.

Most likely 'Dwarf Namwah' aka 'Kluai Namwah Khom'. Could be 'Dwarf Orinoco', but I'd bet on Namwah from the photos provided.

Thanks fellas,
Also judging from the common type plants in the rest of the yard my guess this is a common banana plant for the area.

I will try to update once the flower opens and fruit starts to fill out.
