What Are Some Good Fruiting Banana Varieties?

Recommended Posts

PalmTreeDude

Does anyone know of any good fruiting banana varieties? I am wanting to start some banana seeds in the fall and grow them indoors to a nice size and then plant them outdoors the next Spring with the hopes that they will get big enough to produce some bananas later in the summer.

Fruiting bananas don't have seeds...

You need to start from puping.

Salut ;)

You will not get edible bananas from seeds. You need to buy pups. Edible bananas do not have seeds in fruits.

My personal favorite is Ice Cream banana.

I grow fruiting bananas out here. It's impossible to get fruit within one season in your climate (or mine). What people do in colder climates is dig them up in the fall, store indoors in garage/basement and replant in the spring. This is the ONLY way you'll have fruiting bananas.

 

Bananas dot org is the best site around for all the info you need.

Ice Cream will get big and 'possibly' overwinter in your area.

      What is this plant? I am sure it is an easy one but I have never seen it before, it's planted at a pool. I like the looks of it.

      Hi, does anyone have seeds or seedlings of Aravaipa avocado? I cant seem to find it anywhere for sale online.
      I am located in EU (Croatia) where summers are really hot and winters get quite cold (depends on year). 
      That is why I am searching cold hardy avocado. Thanks for your time

      So I went on Google Maps and was looking around near Cairns Australia just to see what it looked like, and I saw this. Does anyone know what cycad this is? It looks really cool.

      I just got this Papaya from a local Publix, and am wondering if anyone knows what variety it is. I am wondering this because if there are seeds inside, I may try to grow them. Does anyone know when the best time to open a papaya is?

      I cut my banana trees down for the season today, this was their second year of growth. When I first got them I got one small sucker from my neighbors bananas that he dug up for me, it barely had a root on it. I planted it, and it multiplied over the two years of having it. Keep in mind these get a lot of shade in the summer, so they are not as fast as if they were in full sun. Here are the trunks, which I also cut down. I dug up two very small suckers that were just coming up. I am going to try to grow them over the winter in pots.
