"Dwarf" Red Banana

"Dwarf" Red Banana
Dwarf Red Banana, is one of the most beautiful of the banana plants. Bananas are plants, in fact the largest of the herb family, and not a tree as many often think. The "Dwarf" Red, is a strong, vigorous plant which produces a medium size bunch of bananas that are a brilliant red, and gold when ripe. Fruit is very aromatic with a creamy orange pulp. This dwarf matures 6' - 8' at maturity, it takes 20-30 months to bear fruit for the first time, then each year thereafter. Sometimes the red will mutate from red to an all green resulting in Dwarf Green Red. This just happens, and nothing can be done that prevents it. Regular application of fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season will yield good results. Choose a slow release fertilizer. (6-2-12 or 9-3-27). Height: 6' - 8' Type: Dessert, Hardiness: Zone 9 & higher, Temp: For best growth tempatures above 65°F is recommended. Wind tolerant, Light: Full sun to no less than 30% shade. Foliage growers should use 30%-60% shade, Soil: Good water holding capacity is needed, Major Pests: Borers, grasshoppers, and root nematodes, Diseases: Panama disease and Black Sigatoka (a leaf spot disease).

Musa 1780
Musa 1780 is a tall Zebrina, and a wonderful collectors item. It's origin can be traced back to Haiti on the island of Hispaniola. In 1783 Mr. Claude Tremé brought the banana to his plantation near New Orleans, to Laura Plantation, (40 miles up the Mississippi River above New Orleans, Louisiana) where it has grown continuously in a mat since 1780, hence the name. Regular application of fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season will yield good results. Choose a slow release fertilizer. (6-2-12 or 9-3-27). Height: 10-12', Type: Dessert, Hardiness: Zone 9 & higher, Temp: For best growth tempatures above 65°F is recommended. Wind tolerant, Light: Full sun to no less than 30% shade. Foliage growers should use 30%-60% shade, Soil: Good water holding capacity is needed, Major Pests: Borers, grasshoppers, and root nematodes, Diseases: Panama disease and Black Sigatoka (a leaf spot disease).
