Description

This is one of the tallest bananas, reaching 20 feet in height. In spite of its height, the plant has excellent wind tolerance since it is a stout plant with a strong root system. The fruit quality is very good and may be allowed to ripen on the plant without splitting. The plant is solid green with no red color but due to the majesty of its size is a good landscaping plant. Small bunches of fruit wich are extremely sweet and tasty
