Ensete ventricosum - Abyssinian BananaThis listing is for a pack of either 5 or 10 seeds, please select above.

Ensete ventricosum, the Abyssinian Banana, is a member of the banana family native to East Africa. A stunning and stately plant capable of fast growth and a maximum height of 6 metres, although this is restricted by pot culture. It has deep green, typical banana shaped leaves which have a deep red contrasting mid-rib. It can grow as much as 1.2 metres tall in its first year from seed (I have had several do this) and is sometimes used as temporary bedding plants due to this fantastic growth rate. Can be used in bedding schemes in a sheltered location and overwintered in frost free condition or as an impact plant in an exotic garden.

From seed to spectacular houseplant in less than 4 months is a real possibility with this banana. It will flower and fruit under ideal conditions, but the fruit is 'dry' and woody, full of large black seeds. It is not hardy and should be treated as a temporary pot plant for garden use in areas that have any frost. It makes a very good houseplant, generally remaining free from pests.

Full growing instructions can be found in my shop, or by following this link.
