Banana ID

sergio35September 14, 2006

Hello,

I am very new to gardening. A former Boss of mine gave me a banana tree for me to grow. I planted this banana 3 years ago and it has since doubled. I don't remember what the name of this tree is and was wondering how I would go about IDing this tree?

It looks like a reg banana tree but this one is only 3 feet tall.

If you could just point me in the right direction, thanks

Possibly one of the shorter Cavendish varieties.

Definately not dwarf cavendish. Check with the people at the other banana-forum.

Here is a link that might be useful: International banana society
