They will need to mature to determine a cultivar.

That looks like a red banana. Sorry I don't know a correct name. In the Philippines it grows only about 6 feet tall and has red colored small sweet bananas.

May be a Red Dwarf, those are very popular. Your plant looks very healthy and strong now--you may want to separate some of those pups before they crowd each other out.
