Default Potted Bananas Fruiting

There is a lady that sells these. They are in pots. They are fruiting. She claims they are seeded and the fruit is no good.

From the coppery leaves, I suspect Bordelon. Any guesses?

Maybe two types here. She was not open when I stopped by tonight after the storm, so pictures were from outside the fence.
Afterall...doesn't everyone want a bigger Banana?

The tall one on the left looks like 'Orinoco' and the other one looks like it could be 'Bordelon', but 'Bordelon' does not produce seeds (or edible fruit). Either she saw the little ovules in the undeveloped fruit and thought they were seeds or its a different variety, similar to 'Bordelon' but fertile.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.
