Why Veranda Banana Trees?
Widely regarded as the best-tasting banana variety on the market, the Veranda Banana Tree makes it easy to harvest right from home. The Veranda can produce 50 pounds of bananas from your living room or porch, and it fruits up to a year sooner than other, similar banana trees.
Even better? No-fuss growth means no green thumb is no problem. You'll have stunning, tropical-inspired foliage and delectable taste, effortlessly. And the flavor of this fruit is second to none - they have the familiar size and texture of conventional store-bought bananas, but are sweeter and have hints of vanilla.
And this tree's manageable size makes it a decor favorite. Place two on either side of your front door for a welcoming entrance, or arrange a Veranda Banana in your living room for an exotic touch. Its giant leaves purify the air and provide increased oxygen indoors as an extra benefit.

Customer Reviews & Photos
The banana tree came well packaged and with two fronds and one cigar leaf. There is a bit of browning of one leaf but it should be fine as it is common for that to happen in shipping or pressure on the leaf. Very pleased with the purchase.
So far, it has not grown full as yet; however, I do have a baby sprout coming out...so, I am hopeful the plant is out of it's "shock" period.
FGT has been absolutely the best. My banana tree is alive and thriving! I’ve ordered seven different tropical trees for my garden from FGT and it’s been a a great experience over all!
This item is thriving as well as the icecream banana plant I purchased.
First off, this plant is beautiful and has lush green leaves that make you happy! I purchased a banana plant around July in 2018. The little plant arrived full of life but looking weak from the shipping. It grew quickly and beautifully - not a couple of months later, I was the surprised owner of a second plant! The first one produced a pup, which I removed and repotted, and today they are both around the same size (2.5 feet and 3.2 feet from top of soil line) and both are green as can be! I had a third pup I removed and gifted a friend three months ago - it’s also doing lovely. My four stars (instead of five) is because they show no signs of fruiting. I’m hoping they will fruit next year - fingers crossed!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: When deciding where to plant your tree, keep in mind that they prefer full sunlight: At least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Banana trees don’t like extreme heat, so afternoon shade will be more beneficial for your tree than morning shade. And avoid areas that receive high winds, and ensure soil is well-drained.
Once you’ve selected your location, dig a hole that’s twice as wide as the pot and just as deep. Place your Veranda in the hole, and make sure that it’s level with the surrounding ground and that it’s standing straight up. Back fill the hole, tamping down to prevent air pockets and give your tree a long, slow drink of water.
If you're moving indoors, simply ensure your pot has drainage holes and is located in front of a sunny window.
Tip: Mulch the planting site to conserve moisture.
2. Watering: Water your tree every 2 to 3 days during the summer, and every few weeks in the winter, depending on your local climate. Warmer areas that are more prone to drought may require water more frequently.
But if you're not sure when to water your Veranda Banana, simply check your tree's surrounding soil about 2 inches down. If the soil in this area is dry, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: Give your tree a well-balanced organic fertilizer, approximately once a month during the growing season. Fertilizer will have a recommended dose for the size of your tree on the back of the package. We recommend giving your Banana Tree half of that dose for best results.
4. Pruning: Remove any damaged or broken leaves for maximum health. After fruiting, clip back stems with clean shears.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. 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.
