50 Pounds of Fruit, Right at Home
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.

Veranda Banana Tree Pollination
Veranda Banana Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Veranda Banana Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
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. Backfill 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 (generally, this will be a couple of cups of water).
3. Fertilizing: Give your tree a well-balanced organic fertilizer, approximately once a month during the growing season. The 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. 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
The product is great. Ample size, good roots, arrived in good condition, etc. My ability to grow it is questionable. I'm on my second one. :-(
Excellent customer service
I had ordered a Veranda banana tree that had unfortunately been through the ringer on his trip to his new home. Customer service had very quickly gotten in touch with me about my problem and asked if I could resend the photos of the tree I had sent over prevously. I showed them mr.banana's pictures of his first moments out of the box and they sent the pictures to their "tree experts". Ryan the tree expert was excellent to work with, understanding, and respectful. I appreciate you, Ryan. FGT (fast growing trees) took care of my problem and sent out a new tree to replace mr.banana, may he rest in peace. They carefully swaddled the new tree in brown paper like a precious baby and placed him in his box like Moses was placed in the cradle and he arrived in great condition. Though no tree can truly replace mr.banana, he was my very first and favorite (even though I only had him for a few days), this new tree has great aspirations of growing delicious bananas. The FGT customer service alone is worth giving my money to. Thank you!
Love my tree
My first purchase from this Co. tree came as stated. Excellent Veranda 1-2 ft Banana tree. I did buy the extra organic soil and fertilizer. Will be planting in a pot as detailed recommendations for inside growing. Plant is in great shape and growing new leaves everyday! I will use this Co. for my want of peach trees.
Fast delivery healthy plant
I ordered my plant and it arrived as expected. It is heathy and growing fast. Beautiful plant. Can’t wait for it to have bananas!
This little tree is fun. I've had it for about a month and until today it has grown a new leaf every day. Yesterday's leaf was huge and is still unfurling so growth is still very fast. It's in a planter on the east side of my South Florida home and it seems to love it there.
