Default unknown banana

Hello,

I got a banana plant and was pretty excited because it looked like a novak super dwarf banana I had years ago and haven't been able to find another one since. (which is why I spent the $32 the florist shop was selling it for. :-/ ). My plan was to separate the pup and future pups and raise multiple banana plants in hopes I will get a lot of fruit in the future.

The tag just had "musa spp" listed. Unfortunately, I did not read the entire tag till I got home. The last two sentences are " for decorative use only. do not consume". Admittedly, I was sad but still want to keep it. I cannot figure out what ornamental banana this is then. Does anyone know what type this is?

I have attached pictures . Thank you for your help. :-)

Looks like "Novak" (= Super Dwarf Cavendish). If it ever makes fruit, they should be fine to eat.
