Joy Unknown banana found at Tropical islands (European vacation dome)

Hi there. My friend found this banana in the Jungle in Artificial Dome for vacations, Central Europe. I wouldn't normally ask, but he took some offshots and I would really like to know what cultivar it is, as I might be able to lay my hands on it next year.
The plant is not a dwarf, 'cause it's too high, but not the highest type.
Photos below...







Also there was this dwarf, but unfortunatelly not fruiting. Anyone? Seems like some Cavendish. Maybe Grand Nain?

About 3m, plus minus 0,5m. It's difficult to say. However it has never had a direct sunlight, so it's maybe a bit smaller than it would be in natural conditions.

I cannot provide insight to all of the banana plants shown, but the first picture at the bottom shows good detail of a "chocolate" pseudostem and petiole arrangement that looks like the SH 3640 from FHIA. The other pictures seem to be of different cultivars, perhaps banksii seedlings. Without close examination to "Key" them this only speculation. I hope this helps.

The fruiting one was edible. There were no seeds inside.
FHIA you say. Maybe...

my wild guess would be sucrier AA type (Musa acuminata)...long thin pseudostem, small inflorescence and short plump fruits and kinda sweet ones...the bottom one looks like dwarf cavendish to me..

Thank you, I've never seen any diploid, so I didn't guess that one, thanks.

I'd say the top one is a Sucrier-group banana as well. The plant is very similar to Nino.
