The Dwarf Cavendish Banana Tree brings bananas within reach of any home gardener... no matter where you live! In cold areas, they can easily be grown in containers and moved indoors during the winter. Makes a great looking tropical house plant. The problem with other varieties that grow 20 ft. tall is you couldn't bring them indoors to ripen fruit. The Cavendish is dwarf-sized, only maturing to 8-10 ft. tall... so you can easily bring it in your kitchen or sunroom and start growing delicious bananas! Although the tree is a dwarf variety, you still get plenty of regular-sized fruit. If the fruit is not reason enough to grow the Dwarf Cavendish, the huge leaves and pretty flowers are beautiful to look at. The leaves grow up to 4 feet long, are extremely lush, and provide you with shade and privacy. Young leaves may tinge with red, but the majority of the leaves are a fresh green color. The beautiful flower is football shaped and can be quite large. With pollination, the flowers drop and the bananas form. For the fruit to mature and ripen, a frost free environment is needed. The Dwarf Cavendish Banana Tree quickly reaches a mature height of 8-10 feet. It is perfect for adding a tropical look to your pool, patio, or courtyard. These trees are a real showpiece, especially when they display their ripening fruit. The Dwarf Cavendish Banana Tree is easy to grow, and also pest and disease resistant. It can even be grown organically right in your own backyard! Bananas are one of nature's most complete fruits, and having a fresh supply will certainly be good for your health and beneficial to your friends and family!
