Do you think this is a dwarf musa cavendish? (pics)

I have pics of the newer ones, as well as the older plants. In the older plants, you can see a little bit of red on parts of the leaves. When I bought this, it was advertised as a dwarf musa. I've never gotten bananas from it though, so can't say for sure. What do you think? Thank you for any advice. :)

Looks like cavendish, but I'm not sure if it's Musa dwarf Cavendish(stems look kinda slender), it could be one of the other cavendishs. But then again the dwarf is the most widely sold.

I think those are Dwarf Cavendish. If you get pretty warm summers, and you plant them in a 30-gallon or larger pot, you can get blooms and fruit from them. In a container, I've seen them fruit at 5-foot height(pseudo-stem). That's assuming that you'd overwinter them inside near a bright window or with supplemental lighting.
