Default help with identifying a banana



Hi everybody!
This banana is for sale in Toronto for $15. Does anybody know what type it is? It looks quite healthy to me.

I have already two musa basjoo and a musa siam ruby in my bathroom :-), I wander if this is worth adding, as I don't want to put them in the ground till spring. (This looks like a musa basjoo to me, but not quite)

I hope I can show some picture soon, I also planted (seeds) a few Musa sikkimensis and Musa sp. “Yunnan”

I don't have the best eye for identifying but I have Dwraf and Super Dwarf. It looks like it could be Dwraf to me. The leaves are a little longer and slimmer than the SDC. I really can't tell in the picture but Tog always said the pstrem of the SDC had more reddish to it. Really it could be either one but I defiantly think its cavendish.

Did you guys have success (regardless if it's sd or just d) with growing this banana indoor? I read in another thread that it's hard to grow it indoor over winter, and usually it dies in the spring (it was also said that it makes a lot of pups that survive). The cool thing would be to keep the mother alive over winter, who knows, it may flower.
