Description

'Double' is a sport or mutation of the common 'Dwarf Cavendish' and grows similarly. This cultivar usually produces a single head of fruit in the first season, but in successive seasons will almost always produce two large heads of fruit and can occasionally produce a third. The sweet fruit is highly rated and can be very productive. This is a rare and unusual Musa. 'Double' will can grow double stalks on the first year.
