They look like Pisang Awak to me, but very stunted.

Owner was told they were Hawaiian apple banana (maybe he means Brazilian), it reminded me of monkey finger here which is pisang awak, but Im not sure what the other looks like.

They are not ‘Brazilian’ (AAB Pome) or ‘Monkey Fingers’. ‘Monkey Fingers’ is a bit of a loose name as sometimes in the US at least it is applied to 2 different, but seemingly potentially related cultivars, ‘Pisang Jari Buaya’ (aka ‘Crocodile Fingers’) and another one which is a bit similar to ‘Tjau Lagada’, but in anycase they are both AA and quite different from your plant.

The plant you show is clearly an ABB, and seemingly Pisang Awak to me.

Yes, i didnt think it looked at all like brazilian, to me it looked similar to what in Western Australia is commonly called monkey finger. I had the musa germplasm curator identify that one as Ducasse or I think you call it namwah. I thought it was pisang awak but it was just in the pisang awak subgroup, I might get a pup of one anyway to compare them both.
