Grow Delicious Bananas Indoors or Out!
Why Dwarf Cavendish Banana Trees?
Superfruit, right from home. That's what you'll get with the Dwarf Cavendish Banana Tree. Bananas are ultra-healthful, packed with fiber, potassium calcium and iron, plus the good looks for a tropical-inspired tree.
Even better? Dwarf Cavendish Bananas easily thrive in growing zones 4 through 11. Warmer climates enable vigorous growth when this tree planted in the ground, but because our Cavendish is uniquely dwarf-sized, it also thrives when it's container planted. Plus, it only matures to 8 to 10 feet in height, so you'll be able to transport it from the patio to your kitchen or sunroom with ease.
The Dwarf Cavendish means you'll have a tropical air in any space. The leaves of the Cavendish grow up to 4 feet long, are extremely lush, and provide shade and privacy. Young leaves may tinge with red while the majority of the leaves are a fresh green color for extra visual interest, complemented by sizable flowers that drop prior to the development of your delectable bananas.

Dwarf Cavendish Banana Tree Pollination
Dwarf Cavendish Banana Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Dwarf Cavendish Banana Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Place your Cavendish Banana in a sunny location with Southern or Western exposure so that it can receive as much afternoon sunlight as possible. If growing indoors, place next to a large, bright window with the same exposure, turning the plant when necessary to avoid plant growth that tilts toward the light source. Outdoor planting should be done in the summer months to avoid the possibility of frost damage.
Once you're ready to plant, dig the hole large enough to accommodate your Cavendish's root system, place your plant, gently backfill the soil and tamp down to avoid air pockets.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's twice the size of your shipped container, and make sure it has drainage holes. Use organic soil mix and place your tree in the pot, then move in front of a sunny window.
2. Watering: Water two or three times weekly, or more often in dry conditions. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down...if the soil is dry, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: To fertilize organically, use compost, well-composted manure or other organic fertilizers. Spent banana leaves and cuttings can be used as mulch to help return potassium to the soil.
4. Pruning: When bananas begin to sprout, cut off the main flower - this will encourage larger banana growth.

Massive Banana Tree!!
Are we sure we were sent a dwarf?! Planted in late May…it’s already got bananas growing only 6 months later, and has gone wayyy past the 6 foot height advertised. We live in Florida so maybe that’s why. The kids absolutely love watching it grow, and we have it set up to get watered by our sprinkler system so it’s super low maintenance. It also has 6 pups growing so we are going to have even more trees in the spring. So happy with this purchase!
Beautiful tree! The dwarf cavendish banana can reach 8-10 ft tall and 6-8 ft wide!
Dwarf Cavendish Banana Tree - Oh Yes!
I LOVE THEM!!!! They are so perfect. They arrived with their ears down, but that was just from shipping. Within hours of unwrapping them, they were thriving. I have brought them inside, as it is already cold in Upstate NY, and they are loving my big Bay window. They are nestled in with my Coconut Palm and Plumeria. They have brought the tropics to our anticipated long, cold winter and are already making us happy just looking at them.
Very healthy trees
I purchased 2 dwarf banana trees and both received some damage in the shipping process (one tree lost half its leaves and another lost about a third). That being said, I pruned the damaged leaves, transplanted them into slightly larger pots and in less than 2 weeks, both are already growing robust new leaves, in a SW facing window to escape the coming frosts in the NE!
Lovely banana tree
Delivery was fast and both plants I ordered were in good shape! I took a little while to transplant due to my busy schedule but when I did, both plants took very little time to adapt and start to grow already! Living in SETX and having a greenhouse will allow me to grow these all winter. They will live their lives in 30 gallon buckets. Can't wait to order more plants from yall. Picture is of the new leaf that has shown up in the past few days!
