Default Banana Identification Help

I just received what is supposed to be a "Goldfinger" and a "California Gold" that I ordered off the internet from what has been a reliable source in the past. Both plants are about 10" tall with 2 -3 leaves and appear to be healthy. The problem is that they both have red splotches on the leaves. I thought that both of these varieties were known for being solid green.

The person that I bought them from just told me that they should turn all green as they get a bit larger. Does this seem correct? I don't want to find out 6 months from now that I was sent a couple of Dwarf Cavendish instead of what I ordered.

Thanks.

I have 'California Gold' and have never seen any red blotches on the leaves, young or old.
