Thanks Mike.

Anyone else care to make a guess?

Throw a few varieties out there and i'll research, maybe I can narrow it down.

Would more pics help??

Sorry for the poor quality

RP was going to be my guess, but the bananas don't quite look like mine. I posted a picture of my flower on the wiki page.

A Dwarf Cavendish form. There are few different ones in the US that vary in height and bunch size, but they are all rather similar. They normally fruit from 3-6ft.
