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.

Perfect patio plant!
This plant has grown fast already! Came back from a 2 week trip and it already had a completely new leaf and two small ones coming up from the root.
The leaning tower of Pisa
It came packed up real nice. It looked healthy, but was leaning like Cholo. Disappointed.
Beautiful Banana Trees
I bought two Cavandish banana trees a couple months ago. They arrived in great condition, the packaging protected them from the east coast to the west coast. I planted them both in the same big container planter. I used the root rocket which helped them through the stress of planting them. They sit on my patio with full sun about half the day. They have new leaves and have grown taller. I love them!
My beautiful Banana Tree arrived in excellent condition and was so healthy and such a nice size......much larger than I ever expected. It has now been planted and is doing so well. Would I order from them again ..... ABSOLUTELY & that is the best recommendation I could ever give.
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.
