Dwarf Cavendish is a widely grown and important banana variety – producing the same fruit sold in supermarkets. The plant is short and chunky (up to 2.0 metres tall) when grown outdoors in Auckland or further north. Ideal for smaller backyards or greenhouses.
Slender curved fruit, tasty. We think that cavendish fruit grown in Aotearoa tastes much better than fruit bought in supermarkets. The photo of the fruit is of a bunch we grew outside in Waipū.
Dwarf Cavendish is frost tender, and needs shelter and sun/warmth. Well suited to greenhouses, producing smaller, very tasty fruit with large hands.
As with all musa/bananas, the nutritional requirements are high and plants will benefit from an effective fertiliser programme. All banana plants require regular watering during hot spells.
Shipping: We will ship bananas as trimmed stems, with reduced leaves and trimmed roots. The overall plant height will be reduced to the height necessary to go into the boxes. The roots will be well wrapped in moist paper. The banana stem will need planting as soon as possible and lots of water.
