Default Is this Pitogo?

My wife and her colleague are in Panama for work and came across this banana in a botanic garden. Looks most similar to Pitogo to me. Anyone feel confident about identifying it?

It does a bit, but the Saba I've seen have had longer fruit and the plants were taller.

I don't think it is Saba. In Panama the base of the plants would be 2' or wider and the height would be spectacular.

the leaves on my pitogo are much wider and longer than what i see in the pictures.. they are more paddle shaped too, if that makes sense.
