The rare green form of the dwarf red banana is not a just a colourless red banana. It is kept in high regard in Hawaii and other places. It grows just like our dwarf red 'Figue Rose Naine'. The fruits are thick, waxy, fluffy and delicious inside, but they are yellow when ripe.

It is enjoyed by everybody and those who do not like the strong typical "carotenoid" aroma of the red banana will doubtlessly like these.
Stems are yellow-green and leaves are green too but they have showy large flaps on the sides of the petiole. Also the rachis is velvety, just like in the typical red banana trees.
Most of the Green Red bananas in the world are tall clones, but this one is a dwarf appeared here in Tenerife, from a dwarf red 'Figue Rose Naine', like the ones we sell at Canarius. It is a short and compact banana tree, not as dwarf as Rajapuri or Dwarf Orinoco but it still a dwarf.
Protect from temperatures below 8 C, especially young plants. This banana tree is cold sensitive, just as most AAA type bananas (like the common yellow Cavendish bananas of the supermarket).
We ship a stout rooted sucker, not a potted plant. You will receive it with the corm wrapped in a bag with moist sphagnum or perlite.
In spring, suckers may not have roots. In this case, suckers are easy to root if temperatures are kept between 20 and 30 C.
