Default Should have been a Rajapuri

Hi,
I bought 2 Rajapuri and one of the two was quite different and doesn't resemble anything on the seller website.
Do you know what it could be? It has quite distinguishable features, mid rib, leaf border and pstem are reddish:

It kinda looks like a Namwah/Pisang Awak, but it's really way too young to tell what it is at this point, and in these cases all you can really do is wait for it to flower and ID it from that.

I agree it is very Namwah looking! The real Raja Puri is so hard to get! I tried 4 times before getting the real deal! PM me if you need one. I have a few pups.

Oh well, I bought them cause they were cheap( 3 eur each) not because I was looking particularly for Rajapuri. As long as it produce edible fruit, it's fine for me as I have no experience with home grown banana yet
I was just curious as to what to expect and to have an idea on where to place it cause if it gets 4m tall it cannot go in the same place as a 2m one.

Would you post a picture of your Raja Puri? I'm supposed to have one with several pups, I'll compare.
