In cold areas, the can easily be grown in containers and moved indoors during the winter. Makes a great looking tropical house plant.
The problem with other varieties that grow 20 ft. tall is you couldn't bring them indoors to ripen fruit.
The Cavendish is dwarf-sized, only maturing to 8-10 ft. tall... so you can easily bring it in your kitchen or sunroom and start growing delicious bananas!
Although the tree is a dwarf variety, you still get plenty of regular-sized fruit.
If the fruit is not reason enough to grow the Dwarf Cavendish, the huge leaves and pretty flowers are beautiful to look at. The leaves grow up to 4 feet long, are extremely lush, and provide you with shade and privacy. Young leaves may tinge with red, but the majority of the leaves are a fresh green color.
The beautiful flower is football shaped and can be quite large. With pollination, the flowers drop and the bananas form. For the fruit to mature and ripen, a frost free environment is needed.
