Product Description

While smaller than a typical banana tree, Dwarf Banana will still command attention indoors for its long, ovate, deep green leaves--and for its tiny bananas! In 3-5 years, you'll start seeing fruit, which will grow up to 4" long and look exactly like its larger counterpoint. They're delicious, not just for enjoying raw, but also for any dessert you can think of. We like to saute slices with brown sugar and then pour over ice cream. Zones 10. Ships in 3" pots.
