Default red leaf species from china

i just received a few plants of a banana species. the label read "new red species from china (not zebrina)"

does anyone know anything about this one? they were in fruit at 4-6 ft tall, but i had to cut them way back to get them here. ill post a pic of the new emerging leaves. the foliage does look alot like zebrina.

That has different form than acuminata, there are lots of other bananas with same coloration that are not acuminata. Do you have any extra you would like to trade for?
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.
