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
It was perfect, packaged pretty good. Couple leaves were broken but is growing a new one. I’m still excited, I love banana trees. I have three of them in the yard.
Didn’t come in the best shape. Not FastGrowingTrees.com problem. Shipping did a number on this tree. But good news is the tree is thriving now. Very happy for the purchase and can’t wait to get bananas!!!!
This tree is awesome. It is nice and hardy, only been in the barrel for a week and already growing like crazy.
This is the 2nd banana plant we have purchased. The first one is about 5 ‘ tall. It’s been easy to grow and we wanted to add another. Looking forward to seeings some bananas growing.
The plant was well packaged and protected, it had a small shoot growing from the base too, both plants are doing well.
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
