Grow Delicious Bananas Indoors or Out!

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.

Banana leaves are huge and can sometimes get crinkled in shipping. Simply remove any damaged or worn leaves to stimulate the growth of new leaves. Use them to wrap meat for your next barbeque. During the growing season you will see fresh new leaves appear every few days.

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!

Recently purchased and received my Cavendish banana tree. It arrived in good shape. Put it in a bigger pot and it is thanking me with numerous leaves. It thrives in the eastern window and is soaking up the sun. My 2 hermit crabs love to climb up the pot and nestle next to the tree's stalk. Bet they are hoping the bananas arrive soon. ME TOO. Every tree I purchased from FGT has been a delight to own and take care of. They are wonderful people with a A+ attitude.I recommend them to all my family and friends.

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.

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!

Great little banana plant
I purchased this banana plant in August 2014. So far it's doing very well. Because I live in an area with very hot and dry summers, I have it as an indoor container plant in a south facing room. I have it planted with a mixture of 50/50 organic potting mix and citrus potting mix. It seems to do very well next to the window and it is growing at a rate of 1 new leaf every week. I haven't gotten any banana fruit yet, but I understand it could take up to a year to get some fruit from new banana plants. It is a true cavendish banana plant because the new leaves exhibit those famous purplish/brown spots upon opening. So far, so good.

Super Nice Plant!
We love Bananas so purchasing this was a no brainer. It arrived in a slightly damaged box, during shipping no doubt, and the dirt/mulch in the planter was dumped out in the bag surrounding the plant/planter, and the pot was badly damaged.
I re-potted in a larger pot as I don't know where I want to put this yet. The new pot is a gallon planter.
The plant suffered from shipping as it has been a minimum of 100 degrees every day so far, 103 to 107 in the past 2 weeks alone, so it was hotter inside the box.
Once re-planted and watered, it looks to be doing good. It is about 2 foot tall, with many long leaves. I am watering it every day , but not over watering it. It sits on my porch during the day where it gets great morning sun and by noon the sun is straight up. About 1 in the afternoon it starts to get too hot so I move it under the roofed part of the patio so it's not in the direct sun in the hottest part of the day. Before I got to bed, I check on it and move it back out on the porch for the morning sun.
It's still new, only having it a week, so obviously I don't have any fruit yet, but so far it looks good!
Shipping was fast, communication from FGT is excellent. I've received some really nice healthy plants from them so far, and will continue to purchase from them.

Ordered 5 trees, 2 died
The company was great, but we are in Southern California and when delivered, the trees were in need of some serious TLC. We lost our banana tree and our mango tree. The banana tree was Los day 1 and the mango tree was lost after a week or so. Perhaps they just weren't meant to travel these distances. We'll try another source.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cavendish Banana Tree

Cavendish Banana Tree Planting Diretions 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.

I grow indoors in a bedroom under full spectrum LED grow lights, an experiment/hobby starting this year. I look for berry bushes and trees that are dwarf size, are smaller in height and girth and/or can be pruned to size. I have two Clementine trees from fast growing. They are doing very well. I have two Top Hat Blueberry bushes, as well as, Everberry Strawberries, from a local nursery. They are doing very well. I also mixed in some veggies. Now, bananas, pineapple and figs from fast growing!!!!

Re: Best Answer... Does this mean that a new plant must be grown for each banana 'crop'? Also, will it bear fruit if kept inside?

What does the patio planting kit consist of? What size planer can the Cavandish be grown in?
Janet on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: I bought just the tree not the kit...however pot size I planted mine in was huge! The top diameter of my pot is 20-24" across. Had to put the pot on wheels to move it. The leaves are huge...mine measured at least 3-4' in length. Last year I was forced to leave it outside because it was so large. They get 8-10' from dirt level in height. Beautiful plant...but do research on the plant. For example if you want it to fruit...you need to remove the babies...and plant them in another pot. They only fruit once...so the babies are your future bananas!

In a 15 gal container until spring. What should it be fertilized with until then and how often? How low of out outside temp can it take? We've had cold nights high 30's low 40's not frost or freezing.
Steve B on Dec 28, 2014
Best Answer: Banana trees are often as hungry as they are thirsty. Give your tree a well-balanced organic fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Fertilizer will have a recommended dose for the size of your tree on the back of the package. We recommend giving your tree half of that dose to avoid root burn. Once your tree flowers switch to an organic fertilizer that’s low in nitrogen. If a banana leaf drops, leave it. Banana leaves provide excellent natural resources as they decompose. Recommended temperature is above 65 degrees.

Is this plant self propagating?
Tanner on Jun 9, 2016
Best Answer: There are no seeds in the fruits, bananas are propagated from the offshoots that develop at the base of the mother plant. The suckers, pups or rhizomes, are cut off from what remains of the mother plant when they are 3 feet tall, taking some of the root system along with them. After removing the larger leaves,and place the suckers go into containers to develop a good root system of their own.
