50 lbs of fruit from your living room…No effort!

  • Widely regarded as the best tasting banana 
  • Fruits up to a year sooner than other bananas 
  • Stunning tropical foliage makes it the perfect home accent piece

Stop buying grocery store bananas… Harvest 50 lbs of bananas from your living room or porch… It just keeps coming back! This no fuss.. easy grow variety can be grown organically by even the most novice gardener. 

The taste is the biggest plus…Even the pickiest kids love Veranda Bananas. They have the familiar size and texture of conventional store bought bananas, but are sweeter and have hints of vanilla. 

With a max height of 6 to 7 feet, Interior designers love using this banana.  Place two on either side of your front door for a welcoming entrance… or place a veranda banana in your living room for an exotic flare. It’s giant leaves purify the air and provide increased oxygen indoors. You wont be able to find a silk tree for this low price, and this tree will give you fruit!

You will have clumps of perfectly ripe bananas to make all of your favorite foods like banana bread or banana smoothies. Dessert chefs simply mash veranda bananas to make banana pudding… No sugar needed! 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 on the meat that your friends and family will rave about.

Heres why this is our all time favorite banana:

#1 They ripen over several weeks, so you get to enjoy them over a longer period, not all at once like some varieties.

#2 Up to 1 inch growth per day makes it the perfect plant for the impatient gardener.

#3 No pesticides needed… It’s naturally hardy and resists both disease and insects.

Store bought bananas are awful for two reasons:

They are picked green and bitter; then gassed with a chemical to ripen all at once. This leaves you with flavorless fruit.  Second banana plantations are a major contributor to the destruction of the rainforest, by growing your own, you are doing your part to save this fragile eco system.

Why buy poor tasting bananas when you can effortlessly harvest your own home grown, delicious bananas?

If you have a sunny window, porch or balcony…  You can enjoy your own Veranda Banana Tree 

The growing popularity of this tree with urban gardeners has led to short supply… we cannot guarantee stock for more than a week at a time, order today.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
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.
