Cavendish Banana Tree

Grow Delicious Bananas Indoors or Out!

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

Ships at the Proper Planting Time for Your Area
South ships on date above. North ships in spring.
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!

The Dwarf Cavendish is our best-selling banana tree, so be sure to order yours now before they’re all gone!

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Cavendish Banana Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cavendish Banana Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cavendish Banana Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cavendish Banana Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I planted this Banana Tree on a pot. I got a 'baby' already (which I gave to my mother so now she has her own banana tree) and its growing two more on each side. I have it indoors and it's doing great and it looks great too.

By: Pat Baxley
Bought a couple of banana trees couple of years ago cold got th when my wife forgot to bring them insideem last year but plan on getting some more when my tour of duty is up in army

I received this tree over the Thanksgiving holdiay, so the shipping periiod was longer tha normal. I think that the extended time in cold weather damaged the plant because when it arrived, all of the leaves were black. Pam's told me to give it some time to recover, but it never did.Waas very excited about this tree, but did not live up to the description and have't received a refund for it.

By: James/Tamera
Plant doing well. Arrived healthy and have not had any problems. Has 4 babies this year. bought about 1 year ago.No fruit yet but has grown much larger.

By: Amy
I ordered 8 fruit trees within the last month and all of my trees came in beautiful with the exception of my Cavendish Banana tree, however, i called immediately and sent a picture of the tree and the customer service was excellent and they have already shipped me a replacement tree! I highly recommend this company. They have been MOST helpful! My other trees look great and have new growth all over them!

By: Sarat Addanki
I received the plant on time in an excellent condition. I planted it in a pot and it is very healthy and having a good growth. I am extremely happy with the overall quality of the plant and service i received when i called for help. I highly recommend Fat-Growing trees

By: Amy
I bought this tree last year. The original tree I was sent has died over the winter but I have to babies that came off it and they are doing okay. Only about 2 foot high and no sign of fruit. Was not totally impressed with this tree cause I expected to have a big tree by now that was producing fruit. Will wait it out another year and see what happens.


By: Traci Thompson
I ordered this 2 years ago for my father in Florida...and still no fruit. Very disappointing.

By: Jon McGowan
This tree has been awesome! We planted it this summer in a container and it has been super easy to take care of... It has grown to a height of almost 4' in just a few months and we are looking forward to the bananas soon!
