Edible bananas have no seeds and hence there are none available for Ice Cream banana.

Also, I'm hoping you have a very tall year-round greenhouse for the cultivation of bananas in Sweden.

Thank you for your info
I did find a site so I bought a plant from there.
No, I don't have a greenhouse, I am going to have it outside and cover it up in the winter.
I live in the south so it ain't that cold.

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Malm, like the rest of southern Sweden, has an oceanic climate. ... Winters are fairly cold, with temperatures steady between −3 to 4 C (27 to 39 F), but it rarely drops below −10 C (14 F).
Steady temperatures between −3 to 4 C will cause soil moisture to freeze and likely kill your plant. I'd consider planting it in a 15 to 25 gallon (55 - 90 liter) pot and bringing it inside under lighting for protection from early Fall to early spring.

Thanks again 😊
I'm planing to plant in a pot and bring it in and out the first two years.
Then I will try to plant it outside and cover the plant in winter, with whatever I need to so it will be safe
If it doesn't work, at least I know 😊

Edible bananas are a tropical annual that grow from a bulb-like structure called a corm. The main stalk dies after it flowers and fruits. While it is growing the main bulb produces side bulbs which sprout up to form new stalks. These are usually culled when grown under cultivation until the main stalk flowers. The plant you purchased is one of these off-shoots, called "pups".

Given your relatively cool summer and long winter I speculate that your new plant will take 3-4 years to produce fruit unless you provide it with a significant amount of warmth and synthetic sunlight during the winter. Further, I don't think it would survive in the ground over winter regardless of age or above-ground protection.

Hi again Richard.
You are probably right. I will have warmth and light over the winter month the first two years course I'll keep my sensitive plants inside in my bird room, and the third year I'll plant them outside and cover them. Unless we get a really cold winter. But we haven't really had that cold and snowy winters lately. With a bit of luck they survive, and if not I'll buy new and keep them indoors wintertime ��

It might flower in the pot if you are lucky.

Interesting, what sort of sustained night time temperatures have you had in recent winters?

Well, not below -10 Celsius and that's not cold here �� and the snow has been more or less like just white powder. We really don't have winters like some years ago anymore.

you are trying to grow bananas outdoors in the negatives?... that sounds like an exercise in futility. you're better off growing a super dwarf cavendish indoors or if you want to grow outdoors, maybe a basjoo might work.

You might also check out a variety called 'Novak', which apparently stays <1 meter. I'm new to banana culture and haven't taken the plunge yet, but this one looks like a distinct possibility.

Bananas are not a hardwood. Their tissue is mostly filled with tiny packets of water. An above ground covering will not keep the soil moisture, roots, and bulb from freezing (and death) in sustained negative temperatures.

Smile Re: Ice cream banana

Hi again Richard.
Apparently that place I ordered from don't ship banana plants outside USA.
So now I don't know where to get one course that's the only place I found.
I'm totally devastated now.
Do you know anyone that sell banana plants and actually ship them overseas?
I would really appreciate any info about that.

Monique
