Default Unknown Dwarf!?!

Received some bananas from a friends yard, she said they were dwarf bananas from her father's finca. They grow to a height of only about 5 or 6 feet and have a good sized bunch.

Do you have a photo of the male bud? They appear to be a Cavendish, though perhaps. It a true dwarf, but rather could just use some more fertilizer or water. Looks somewhat like 'Williams'. If you can, also take a photo of the whole plant from standing farther away, and one of the base of the pseudostem after tearing off an outermost sheath so we can see the color of a section which has not been exposed to sunlight.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.
