Default Question: what is "AEAA" and "AA", etc?

I'm in SC in my 2nd attempt at growing and not killing 2 bananas. One is Kopopo (sp) and the other is allegedly a Super Dwarf Cavendish. My plant from last year was a Dwarf Cavendish that was beautiful until I overwatered it in the winter (inside).

I was just curious I keep seeing these abbreviations and don't know what they mean. I plan on sharing photos of my 2 bananas soon to show ya'll their progress and see if ya'll can tell if they are what I was told they were and if they look right to ya'll. Talk soon!

Growing Banana's coming down to 3 things.. How to mix soil so u can't kill them in ur environment. Fetilization, and for you indoor prep where as mine is outdoor prep in cold weather.. Now there are other topics like plant placement for best results during all seasons, but that's not part of the basic 3.. or it could be if they mitigate winter cold prep..
