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.

Customer Reviews & Photos

Product shipped a little early and a couple of the smaller leaves browned and died. After a couple of days, the rest of the leaves were back to normal. Overall, the plant looks good.
The company did an awesome job of getting my trees to me. Thank you.
I received my Dwarf Cavendish Banana tree from Fast-growing-trees.com on November 22, 2019. I was debating for a long time if I should try my luck with the tree and I finally ordered it. I was excited to have it arrive in a well-packed box. This was my first order with FGT.com and I didn't know what to expect. I was nervous on my first impression of the tree as it had two leaves one of which was torn and looking old. It did seem healthy though otherwise! I repotted the tree and sat it near the sliding door where it could get some light. I also supplemented the light with a GE grow light on a timer to be safe. I was amazed by how quickly the tree was growing. A new leaf appears almost every week and it hasn't slowed down. I love this tree and it has been a great addition to the living room. All visitors are jealous and want it. I am hoping I can continue to keep it alive and well. Now it is about 4 months since it was delivered and it is almost 6' tall and the leaves are enormous. I posted a comparison photo with this review. I am loving the tree and love Fast-growing-trees.com I have my sights set on more plants and I can't wait.
I love it...Waiting for tree has more leaves...Growing so far so good
My banana tree arrived in a timely manner and was in great shape! I had no complaints. As of today, my tree is growing and is beautiful. Thank you Fast Growing Trees!
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.
