Musa Details

The Banana Palm is grown for both its aesthetic qualities and fruit. It features broad, mid-dark green leaves that are borne off upright stems. Large flower trusses in spring give rise to the short but tasty fruit in autumn. In warm climates it may produce two crops per year but one is the norm. It typically grows to 5 m tall and 3 m wide with multiple suckering stems, and a dominant stem or two. This Palm performs best when positioned in full sun on a well-drained and sheltered site that is frost-free. It will tolerate a light frost once established and will generally regrow again. The Banana Palm is commonly included in subtropical or Mediterranean themed gardens, planted around outdoor living areas, grown for fruit production, or grown as an interesting specimen. Banana Palms are easy to grow and very forgiving with the added benefit of tasty fruit.
