Why we love it: The unripe bananas have a distinct blue colour to them and once ripe taste like ice cream! This fast growing banana is a great addition to any home, inside or out. 

Please note: It takes at least 2 growing seasons for the plant to produce fruit and be winterized inside for one growing season. 

Light: Bright indirect to direct light. Full sun is required to produce fruit.
