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.
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!

Specific Directions for Cavendish Banana Tree
Your Cavendish Banana Tree will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although the Cavendish Banana Tree can tolerate shade, it prefers full sunlight. Be sure to place your tree in an area that doesn't receive high winds. If planted indoors place it by a large sunny window.
Cavendish Banana Trees prefer loamy soils, but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay, as long as it's well draining. Keep your soil damp, but not over saturated. Apply an organic fertilizer to your Cavendish Banana Tree once a month.
When a large purple flower emerges you'll see bananas after two months. Each banana will have a flower on the end, once the flower falls off it's time to harvest them. Your Bananas will quickly ripen after being picked.
