Banana ‘Dwarf Lady Finger’ (Musa acuminata)
Yes, you can grow and harvest edible bananas in a pot. This new banana grows up to be 5′ high which is about as good as it gets in the world of dwarf bananas. We were surprised at how early this cultivar came into fruit, outpacing any of the other container-sized bananas we’ve grown. The trunk and leaves are modest in size, making it manageable for indoor and patio culture. The fruiting flower stem displays itself beautifully, arching and pendulating from the plant’s crown. The 4-5″ fruit is sweet and delicious. Give this one plenty of warmth, sun, water and fertilizer and in no time you’ll be harvesting a bountiful crop.
