The Best Plantain For Cooking

The Puerto Rican Plantain Banana is softer and sweeter than other plantain varieties, which are commonly hard and bitter. That’s why they are the favorite variety for cooking all over the world.  

This plantain tree is a great variety to have around because they produce tons of fruit so you’ll have plenty of plantains available for adding to your favorite recipes and to introduce your family and friends to new exotic desserts. They’ll be amazed by the sweetness of your homegrown plantains, because they will have a flavor that can’t be found in the common plantains found in grocery stores. 

The Puerto Rican Plantain Banana Tree loves growing in containers and will thrive indoors. Place your tree near a brighter sunny window and watch with delight has its large, tropical leaves add vibrant color to the room and welcomes guests with an island paradise feel. 

When kept in pots Plantain trees can be placed on porches and patios during the warmer months to accent your outdoor furniture. They are also great for framing entryways and for keeping by the pool.  

While other plantain varieties are extremely sensitive to cold weather and high winds, the Puerto Rican Plantain is tough. It has a high level of wind resistance as well as a high level of heat and drought tolerance. 

This Plantain Banana Tree is noninvasive and only grows about 6 to 8 feet tall, so it will never take over your yard. Simply decide where your plantain trees will look best, and prepare for tons of sweet Puerto Rican Plantains.   

Plantain 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.

Puerto Rican Plantains are enjoyed in a variety of different ways. They can be fried with butter and cinnamon for a delicious dessert or baked and grilled with brown sugar. As they cook they become sweeter, and they’re perfect for adding to ice cream and for sautéing with meat. 





Puerto Rican Plantain Banana Tree Pollination

Puerto Rican Plantain Banana Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Puerto Rican Plantain Banana Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Puerto Rican Plantain Banana Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Puerto Rican Plantain 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 Puerto Rican Plantain Banana Tree again after the transplant is complete.
