How do you determine what kind of banana plant you have? What characteristics should I look for?

OK Thank you. These have never fruited. I've had them for a few years. The first one came from my Dad. His have fruited before, so I hope these will eventually. They are pretty prolific. I started with 3 and now have about 16. I need to spread them out and create a grove.
