Second'd that the second one is Orinoco. It's not chunky enough for Saba.

I'd go with Namwah for the first - in my experience, Goldfingers are much rounder even as green fruits.

The first photo is a dwarf Pome subgroup member, either 'Dwarf Brazilian' or 'Raja Puri', it gets easier to tell them apart when they are more mature, so post some more photos later. How tall is this plant? Definitely not 'Goldfinger' or 'Namwah'.

The 2nd and 3rd photos are 'Orinoco' for sure.

Went back and took another look. The plant is 5 1/2 to 6' of p.stem
