ENSETE ventricosum “Abyssinian banana”

Unpredictably the size of this ornamental banana tree can vary from 15′ to 34′ depending mainly on the warmth and duration of your growing season. The leaf stems are noticeably lower on the pseudostem causing a wider overall look. As the older leaves die back their leaf stems remain attached to the trunk. The lower trunk becomes swollen with age as the plant becomes taller. The leaves are generally 8′ long and 4′ wide. Usually several years pass before flowering takes place. The showy flowers occur en masse on a thick, 10′ long hanging pendulum. This is a vigorous, fast growing plant and is more tolerant of coolness than most varieties. The large black seeds are the size of a medium sized marble. ( Be sure to see our Index of BANANAS where you will find other varieties of banana that we offer as rooted rhizomes ). Plant at a depth of 1 1/2″ using well draining soil mixture. Keep very warm and damp ( not wet ) with bright light & high humidity. Fertilize weekly. Be patient – seeds can germinate in 3 weeks or may take up to 8 weeks. Do not keep wet or you may actually rot the seed’s embryo. 7 seeds per packet.
