Banana Plants Buyer's Guide

Banana plants (Musa acuminata) are easy to grow, require very little pruning maintenance, and make a delightful accent to any landscape. When you grow your own banana plant, you will enjoy large, smooth tropical foliage – with an edible fruit bonus! These banana plants develop fruits which are small to medium in size and are packed with vitamins and minerals, best used fresh or in smoothies, salads, and baked treats. In warm zones with low frost-risk, grow a banana plant all year long in the yard as an accent feature. In cooler zones, plant in the yard during the warm summer months and transplant into containers for protection indoors from frost and other winter elements. Or simply grow banana plants indoors in containers year-round and take pleasure in their lush tropical charm.
