The interesting thing about my current varieties is that only the Mahoi (or Cavendish?) was actually bought locally. the other two were ordered from and at the recommendation of green earth company. There are some dwarf green available locally as well. Any info on those relevant to this discussion? Im trying to look these up and learn what I can, but so many different names and different sellers list them differently, they don't always seem to be listed as something that comes up in a search.
With regards to receiving what you ordered, beware of greenearth publishing Co. Every last plant I ordered from them turned out to be different from what I ordered:

What I thought I ordered:
veinte cohol turned out to be hi color mini
california gold turned out to be williams
Ice Cream turned out to be rajapuri (I was actually happy with this result)

It's been some years now, any update with what the Cultivars ended up being?
