Default Super Dwarf Banana?

Saw these bananas at the nursery show. The tag says, "s. d. banana". Iwould guess that this means they're Super Dwarf Cavendish. What do you think?

Hi Sandy, They weren't at either. They were in a display, near the center of the show, next to the Fla. Nursery Growers Assn. booth.
