Banana, Truly Tiny (2 Plants, Ships April-June)

(Musa) We believe this to be the smallest edible banana variety anywhere! “Truly tiny” plants mature at just 2-4 feet tall, making them ideal for greenhouse culture or containers, which is how it should be grown in most of the country. Leaves are very ornamental, with purple-red splashes. Yield a small dessert-type banana. This crop is easy to grow in the south, and produces fruit rather quickly for such a large plant. . You can grow these as far north as zone 8 with protection or in heated greenhouses of sun-rooms farther north. We love growing bananas in our Missouri greenhouse and get a crop in under a year. 2 plants.

We are super excited to be offering a selection of live plants, these are produced for us by tissue culture, a natural process that produces plants that are generally high-quality and disease free. We have some stunning new food crops in our plant listing, we hope you will try some of the exciting rare plants we offer this year. Pre-order now, as supplies on some these will be limited. The plants we ship are small, but sturdy, and we offer a 30 day guarantee on live plants. Most plants will be 6”-12” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of April to the end of June. We will ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed delivery dates. No orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs, just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER APRIL 1, 2017)

What are the pros? Like hot ,humid weather

What are the cons? 50-60 degree weather

Review:

I received these in early June and planted them in miracle grow potting soil with a little fertilizer in 2 gallon pots.You get 2 plants and aren't very big,maybe 4-5 inches.By August they had grown to 19 inches,all the time being outside on porch and being in hot humid weather they loved that.In October I bought bigger pots for them,I am guessing 15 gallon.It is November 28th and from the rim of the pots to the top of plants one is 43 inches tall with 22 inch leaves and the other plant is 40 inches with 21 inch leaves.In late October I brought them into the house and are in a sunny room.I have ordered banana plants before and they would grow but it would take them from May until November and maybe got 2 foot tall.These have exceeded my expectations by far.When they were outside, they were voracious with water sometimes I had to water twice a day.While inside now they aren't as thirsty but still have water along edges of leaves and maybe not as fast but they are still growing.

What are the pros? Easy care, small size, cute

What are the cons? No fruit yet

Review:

I love these plants so much. I've had mine growing in 20" pots for about two years now, and they are thriving. They've reached full size and have produced at least 12 pups, but no fruit yet. I've been skimping on the fertilizer, so I can't really blame them for that. Fun little plants to have around regardless.

What are the pros? Grows fast

What are the cons? None yet

Review:

These were tiny less than a year ago and are now huge (16" and 11" respectively) despite being attacked by spider mites repeatedly. One was kind of a runt when I got it, and has always been behind in growth, but both are growing like weeds. Hope to see some fruit this year.

What are the pros? Nice leaves.

What are the cons? Produced no fruit.

Review:

I grew 2 of these in 3 gallon containers in full sun. It grew nice leaves to about 20" in height. But, it never produced any fruit. I potted it in a mixture of rose soil, compost, humus. I amended the soil for physical properties with Texas Green Sand and decomposed granite. I fertilized it about once a month. Not sure if I will try this again. Being tropical plants, you will need to cover these on cold nights.
