Banana Plant
Reviewed By: Helen (Los Angeles, CA)
I bought the banana plant about 1 1/2 years ago. It grew so quickly & is now about 10 feet high. All I've done is water it when the soil seems dry but have not sprayed it with anything so the fruit is truly organic. Once the tree bears fruit it takes some time to ripen. I took some of the fruit iff after 3 months, and it seems that they ripen best once off the bunch and inside. One good way to ripen the bananas (& other fruit) is to put them in a closed brown paper bag for a few days. The heat generated heps speed the ripening process. This year I have my first crop, about 60-70 lbs. of fruit, im 3 huge bunches. The bananas are different from the ones in the supermarket, but my husband says they are so sweet.

Good Buy

I purchased 2 of these great little plants just for fun. They were not so little when I got them, they grow great even up in the North East. Will definately order more from this site.

Very Nice Looking Plant
Reviewed By: Toni (Wisconsin Rapids, WI)
I have had my plant for about 1 year and it has grown very well. It is about 2 feet tall and in the summer grows a new giant leaf each week (placed outdoors in full sun, and indoors for all of winter). I have researched what to do with the sprout that started to grow off it about 2 weeks ago and decided to cut it off at the base. It has only been in water for 1 day and is growing roots! So now I will have 2 leafy green banana trees!! No fruit yet but the tree is very young for that.

Holds up in heat
Reviewed By: Sonia (Sacramento, CA)
Our plant started out small and has grown rapidly over only a few months. It is constantly turning out new sturdy leaves. Our temperatures reach into the hundreds regularly and it has held up in direct sun. Right now it is potted (small pot) and is doing well in potting soil with good drainage.

Banana plant
Reviewed By: Beau Thomas (Lingle,, Wyoming)
Well I have had this plant/tree for a year & half and it seems to grow and grow, wish I knew how tall it will actualy get. Right now it is about 5 to 6 feet tall and in the discription it says that they only get 3-5 feet. I think they need to change a few things with selling the plant. thanks
