Banana trees are very easy to grow for the gardener who likes delicious tree ripened tasty fruit. Ty Ty Nursery grows banana trees in fields just like row-crop farmers cultivate fields of cotton and corn. The extensive shelf life of the commercial bananas harvested during the green stages of development made the banana the most popular fruit in America, but most store bought fruits have lost their intensive desirable flavor that a home gardener who grows his own tree ripened fruit can experience.
Planting Banana Trees
Magical Peeling Banana
Wonderful Banana Trees
You can plant a banana tree in the Northern States that will produce tasty bananas and add a tropical landscape to your pool or garden. The idea of a Northern planting of cold hardy banana plants is exciting to a gardener from a State that is North of Florida, Louisiana or Texas. Banana trees have been proven to survive the cold frigid winters of below zero temperatures. A very large banana plant can grow up to 17 feet in a single season with most of the banana growth occurring between June and September.
Ty Ty Nursery prefers to ship banana trees during the growing season during the summer, fall and spring. Sometimes a gardener can produce delicious bananas during the very first year that the banana tree is planted.
The Texas Star Banana trees and the Golden Rhinohorn banana tree are considered the most cold hardy banana to grow in more Northern states. The Texas Star banana tree has survived minus sixteen degrees cold in Wichita Falls, T.X in 1988.
