50 Pounds of Fruit, Right at Home

Widely regarded as the best-tasting banana variety on the market, the Veranda Banana Tree makes it easy to harvest right from home, with no need to make grocery store visits. The Veranda can produce 50 pounds of bananas from your living room or porchand it fruits up to a year sooner than other, similar banana trees

Even better? No-fuss growth means no green thumb is no problem. You'll have stunning, tropical-inspired foliage and delectable taste, effortlessly. And the flavor of this fruit is second to none - they have the familiar size and texture of conventional store-bought bananas, but are sweeter and have hints of vanilla. 

And with a maximum height of 6 to 7 feet, this tree's manageable size makes it a favorite amongst interior designers. Place two on either side of your front door for a welcoming entrance, or arrange a Veranda Banana in your living room for an exotic touch. Its giant leaves purify the air and provide increased oxygen indoors as an extra benefit.

With this tree, you'll have bushels of perfectly ripe bananas for everything from banana bread to smoothies. Dessert chefs simply mash Veranda Bananas to make banana pudding - the flavor is so sweet, no added sugar is necessary. Make authentic Hawaiian Luau pork or fish by wrapping your meat in banana leaves and placing it on the grill. The banana leaves impart a sweet island flavor to nearly any ingredient!

Why else is the Veranda Banana one of our favorites? For starters, this tree's bananas ripen over several weeks, so you can enjoy them over a longer period. Another benefit is the Veranda's fast growth since it claims up to 1 additional inch in height each day, ideal for the impatient gardener. 

Last but not least: No harsh sprays or chemicals needed. It's naturally hardy and resists both disease and insects. If you have a sun-soaked window, porch or balcony, you're ready to get growing and enjoy your own Veranda Banana Tree.

Fast fruit, fresh flavor and one-of-a-kind beauty. The Veranda Banana Tree has it all. Order your own (or two) today!

It arrived a bit droopy but well packaged and soil moist. After a couple of weeks it has blossomed and has grown several inches already. Very happy with it.

Got it in the summer and it was doing well. I brought inside for the winter (Vermont) and it continued to do well. Several months later it died. I don't know why. I don't know if it was something I did or a problem with the plant, however, I plan to order another when they are in stock, as it is a gift for my daughter for my daughter and son-in-law.

I hope both of mine produce fruit. I have had mine for about 6 months now and one of them has a sucker coming up. I will definitely repot in the spring with different soil.

Fast grower
I got my Veranda Banana plant just over a month ago, and when it arrived, it was very healthy despite having a few leaves damaged in transit. I waited about a week to move it into a larger container, and since then, it has grown nearly a foot. Although I'm skeptical that it will actually bear fruit, the tropical foliage makes it a beautiful potted plant. The late October temperatures in Atlanta are a bit too cool for it, so it's now been moved into a south-facing room. We'll see if the rapid growth continues indoors.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Veranda Banana



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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 Veranda Banana 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 Veranda Banana again after the transplant is complete.

This variety lends itself to growing in planters on a patio in our zone 9 and will hopefully tolerate the heat and occasional light freeze we get in Las Vegas.

My father is from the Philippines and I wanted to give him a special 82nd Birthday gift. He is so excited and said he is going to plant it in the front yard. Dad is going to love this tree so much. What a lucky tree!

DAISY G on Jun 15, 2018
Our family enjoys eating bananas but we don't live in a tropical climate. We buy bananas all the time and if we had a patio tree, we could enjoy our own bananas and always move it indoors when temperatures drop. We appreciate such good variety of fruit trees that you grow and carry! Thank you!

Hi, Does this banana send out "pups"? Does this banana keep producing from the main plant or due to the pups that grow? Thank you. Renee
Renee on Sep 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The pups (babies) will provide the next years bananas.
How frost tolerant is the banana and does it fruit the first year?
David V on Oct 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Veranda bananas will fruit within 6 - 12 months. Fruit will be ready to harvest in summer. They prefer to stay above 50 Fahrenheit, but can take down to 40 Fahrenheit for short periods. Most people should grow them near a large south facing window.
Is this a Dwarf Cavendish banana tree? Ive never heard of a veranda banana tree and could not find any information on it online.
noah f on Jul 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Veranda banana is related to the grand nain. Being a new variety, not much information is out there.
Is the Veranda Banana self pollinating?
m f on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Veranda Banana Does not need a pollinator. It produces fruit all by itself.
We are in the Tampa, FL area. It does get cold here sometimes freezing, but if it does it is usually just overnight. I would love to plant two of these in our front yard that gets lots of sun and no shade. Do you think we will have a problem with our light winters?
Cliff G on Jul 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Cliff, I live in Wesely Chapel, Just north of Tampa and started the baby plant indoors until it needed to go in to a large pot where it sits outside in full sun. It is about 7 ft tall and has 3 plants coming up from the base bulb. In the winter if we do get a cold snap, cover it with a sheet or light blanket and they should do marvelous.
Where are the reviews on the fruit these trees produce?
Ellis on Oct 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I purchased mine last fall, it has grown well but has not produced fruit.
How big of a container is preferred for this banana plant?
Peter on Oct 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It does not seem very picky but I would think three to five gallon would be about right. You will get "pups" for certain -- if the container is quite small, it will quite quickly get crowded.
How often do we water our patio banana tree??
Marie E. H on Jul 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have it indoors in a well lit room by the window and water every 10 days or so. We have had it for about 8 months and it seems healthy and thriving. No bananas yet.
How many times will the banana root (corm) keep producing new pups to produce more bananas?
Renee O on Sep 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will produce new pups for 28-30 months, meaning you should get 3 full harvests. The first harvest Is the biggest and the next two are slightly smaller.
I live in South Florida, Indian River County, I’m sure I can plant this with no real “work” is that true? Rarely will it get below 50 here if it does it’s for a few hours at night.
No N on Nov 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will grow great there! The climate in South Florida is perfect for these bananas. I've had My Veranda Banana for 2 months indoors and it has grown over 2 feet, I just water once a week. But if you're growing inground, you probably won't need to water after it's established.
