Fear not , they grow very quickly !

I know this one only grows to about 2 feet and can produce bananas in the first year. Unlike my ice cream bananas that take two years

Wow, that’s nice. Hope you have the weather for it.

I have a ton of subtropical and tropical plants. I live in central Florida Plus this banana tree only gets about 2 feet tall great growing in pots. And will even fruit kept inside the house. So anyone can grow this cultivar.

Is she expecting the truly tiny banana to turn into a truly ginormous banana?

It only get to about 2 feet tall

@Donto101 The red banana grows really well here on the coast of North Carolina. A few people have them planted in their yards. One of the things I miss about Florida are the different plants that will grow there and not other places. Bananas get fairly tall here.

@Alvinsmama hey, you want to drive over to Cherry Point and see wtf my son is doing. He sure never tells me.

@MissKathleen Is he a Marine or in the Navy? I'm afraid I can't be trusted around Marines, unless he's married or has a gf. OoooRah and Semper Fi

@Alvinsmama Stay away from my son, you hussy! (LOL) Oh wait, he has a live-in, so get on over there and see what he’s up to.

@MissKathleen I was only kidding (kind of) about your son. I haven't been to Cherry Point in years. I used to go there fairly regularly for boxing matches. I used to be an amateur boxing official.

@Alvinsmama LOL, I told you he has a live-in, so I wasn’t worried, per you reassurance.

How cute, how big is it supposed to get?

2 feet great for container and fruit inside

@Donto101 that's really neat that I can get that big from that little bitty plant, plants are amazing.

From tiny things, great things may come.
