Default Banana plants for sale in SoCal

Hi all, I grow the following bananas. All heights listed are the height of the Pseudostem i.e. "trunk" at fruiting height. By propping I mean that certain varieties when fruiting become top heavy and will fall over. To prevent this they need to be propped up. The size doesn't really matter because they grow so fast. The true value here is that you are actually getting the variety you pay for. Many, many bananas sold online and at nurseries are mislabeled.

3 gallon plants are $20 and about 2-3 feet tall total height excluding pot.
6 gallon plants are $35 and about 4 feet tall total height excluding pot.
15 gallon plants are $50 and 5 feet or taller, total height excluding pot.

Currently available for sale I have Namwa in 3 and 6 gallon, Gold Finger in 6 and 15 gallon, Dwarf Brazilian in 15 gallon, Blue Java in 3 and 15 gallon and Manzano in 3 and 6 gallon.

Dwarf Brazilian - Beautiful plant, grows to 8-10' tall, nice wide dark green leaves, produces large bunches of delicious fruit. This is a Hawaiian variety. In Hawaii it is called an Apple Banana. THIS IS A MUST HAVE! If you only grow one banana, this is it! Never needs propping.



Gold Finger - Nice banana, grows to about 10', large fruit. It is a cross between Dwarf Brazilian and Gran Nain (the bananas you buy in the store i.e. Chiquita bananas). Needs propping.

Manzano - Grows tall and skinny, produces bananas that have a slight green apple taste to them, grows to 10-13' tall. Requires propping.

Mysore - Reddish purple coloring in the trunk, and the underside of the leaf. Produces heavy bunches of very sweet flavorful bananas 3 to 5-inches long. Widely grown in India and one of the favorite dessert bananas there. Very ornamental and a good producer of quality bananas. Grows to 10-14' tall. Requires propping.



Blue Java AKA Ice Cream - This is the real Ice Cream banana. Most bananas sold as Ice Cream aren't the real thing. This banana tastes like no other! It has a light and fluffy texture with a slight vanilla taste. The fruit ripens to a blue, silver color with light green leaves on the plant. Grows to 10-12' tall. This is a Hawaiian variety.



Namwa - Produces 200-300 of the sweetest bananas you have ever tasted! Fruit flesh is dense and light orange colored. This banana is from Thailand. Requires propping. Grows to 8-11' tall.

Red Iholene - One of the most beautiful banana plants due to its attractive coloring of red and purple on the trunk and under sides of the leaves. The pink fleshed bananas are delicious fresh or cooked and is a favorite Hawaiian variety. Very beautiful plant but it is cold sensitive. It grows to 10-12'.



Gros Michel - The original store bought banana! Up until the 1950's this was the most popular banana sold in the world. Most of the plants were killed by disease and the banana industry switched to a new variety. The Gros Michel is a little larger and MUCH better tasting than the bananas sold in stores today. Grows to 12-14', requires propping.



California Gold - A very short and cold hardy banana. Excellent for colder areas or to be grown in a pot. Grows to only 6' tall. Does not require propping.



Raja Puri - A very popular banana from India. It is very cold and wind tolerant. Another good variety to grow in pots. It grows to 8' tall. Sometimes needs propping.

Dwarf Red - Very beautiful short plant that is very sensitive to cold. The plant has red coloring to Pseudostem and fruit. These are the red bananas you can buy in the store. It grows slow and is recommended only for collectors. Grows to only 6-8' tall.



You can Pm, call or text me.

My Gros Michel is about 5-6 feet tall PS. It is about two and a half years old grown from TC. It should be much larger but I left it in a one gallon pot for over a year. I finally put it in the ground last summer. I expect it to bloom this summer. It is a very attractive plant.

I would not describe mine as slow but it isn't one of my faster growers either. It grows faster than my Dwarf Red, Red Iholene and California Gold. I will keep a little better track of it this summer when it heats up.

Hello sddarkman619,

I just found and joined the forum. Very fresh newbie here.

Pretty much just joined cause I bought a "Ice Cream" banana from another person and found out after 2 years that it was a NamWa apparently and I heard that buying from many online places you may run into the situation that I found myself in. Basically spending years expecting 1 type of banana and getting a completely different one.

I figured I would try a forum member as they would have a greater chance of knowing what type of banana they are selling.

I happened to find Bill and was in the area and arranged to meet him and buy several types.

I just wanted to share my experience with other members here because I was very happy with his knowledge and helpfulness and figured other newbies may appreciate the feedback.

Cheers!

Bought a Blue Java "Ice Cream", A Mysore, Dwarf Brazilian, and a Paggi.

Had to cut the stalks/leaves of the Blue Java and Mysore as I was flying back home to San Jose and had to fit it all into a check in box.
