One plant, 2 tags

I got this banana at a garden center, one tag said "Ice cream" and the other said "Raja Puri" The leaf stem of this plant seem to close up again after releasing a new leaf and that is about the only thing that seems to be different from my other bananas. I have an ice cream pup but it is still too small to compare. Thanks for any help you can give.

A picture would really help.

Yeah -- like pitanga said. For now call it a Rajacream.

Ok, this was the best I could do but you can see how the leaves are arranged and how they close up, thanks!!

normally an ice cream banana will have a whitish coating on the bottom side of the leaves, making it look kind of silvery.
A raja will have a very wide leaf.
Maybe that will help
