I think that it might be a Super dwarf cavendish or dwarf cavendish, but I wanted to know if anyone else would be able to help me identify it. Here are a few pictures:

It already has a pup!

Dwarf cavendish? 1

Dwarf cavendish? 2

Dwarf cavendish? 3

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance

Again, I don't think that means anything. If I wanted, I could name one Musa 'Fred' and it would carry about the same significance. I see the same thing with some orchids coming from thailand. They re-name it to something else, and sell it to unsuspecting folks that think they have something unique and different.

100% pure unadulterated guaranteed 'Musa Fred'

Actually, from everything I've seen I would disagree. Fred sells much better, but not quite as well as Derrick.

But seriously, I don't quite believe that all these differently named SDC cultivars are exactly the same. Hicolour Mini is obviously different looking as is one called 'Purple Rain'.

Simple, take a known cultivar and rename it...
