Default What is it? Brazilian of some kind?

A long time ago, Gabe took a look at the first pic of my first bunch and told me my Manzano was a Brazilian. One problem, A tall Brazilian would be much taller than this one at about ten feet- 10'6 for the last 3 blooms, plus would have a clean rachis.
Dwarf Brazilian has a very messy rachis, but the height is about right, and they sure taste like what Brazilians have been explained to taste like. Here is a pic of the flower after many weeks of growing past the last hand, which I usually do not do.
For the record, when I cut the flower, they begin to fill out soon after, note how puny these still are over two months after they flowered. This one was flowering during hurricane Matthew.
I lightened the pic to show the rachis more clearly...



I just want the most accurate ID I can get on it.
Thank you all.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.

If it helps, the bunch in my avatar is a nearly filled out bunch of the same type of bananas. They were about two or three weeks away from ripening "on the vine" when this pic was taken..
