Variegated bananas are on the way to the shop

Canarius | Thursday April 4th, 2013 |

Striped Bananas and Extra Dwarf Bananas ! They all produce edible fruits and make great eccentric ornamental plants.

On April 8th we will finally check in the stock of variegated bananas for Spring 2013. We will know the exact varieties of  banana trees that will be available for the shop. These plants will be offered for sale by the end of April, which is by far the best time of the year to start a banana tree in a non-tropical climate.

We are waiting for different types of Cavendish banana trees with variegated leaves and also extra dwarf types of banana trees.

These plants are raised in-vitro here in the Canary Islands. They correspond to the best commercial cultivars of edible bananas, such as Dwarf Cavendish, Cavendish Brier, Cavendish Grand Naine and others. At times we could get also Orinoco/Bluggoe/Topocho or Dwarf Red Banana Trees.

Canarius | Thursday December 27th, 2012 |

We just uploaded many new products and lots of pictures.  Even more will follow in the next future, before Spring.  We had to create some new sections in the store, in order to accomodate the new species.
