Default What is the best tasting potted banana

From what I've read the Musa Super Dwarf is the best since it stays pretty small making it ideal to bring indoors. I'd like to try the ice cream but seems like it might get too large to bring in over the winter.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the info definitely helped out alot

So basically without a greenhouse chances are pretty slim to get fruit from any banana up here, guess its time to move to Panama lol

Still gonna give it a shot, any suggestions for the best place to order from?

We are finishing a greenhouse this week made from an old trampoline frame we got for free. I just saw someone post a free metal gazebo frame on craigslist that would make a QUICK greenhouse draped with clear plastic. Don't think for one minute that a greenhouse is not in your reach.

Another thing I have noticed about super dwarf and dwarf cavendish is that the root systems are not so small either. They become rootbound very quickly, especially if you allow too many pups to overcrowd the container. I think this is one of the reasons many people don't ever get fruit in containers. They need containers at least 2/3 the diameter as the plant itself.
