Big tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The largest tree-borne fruit in the world, reaching 80 pounds in weight and up to 36 inches long and 20 inches in diameter. The interior of the fruit consists of large edible bulbs of yellow, sweet, banana-flavored aromatic flesh. As the fruit ripen at the bottom of the trunk, this tree can be (and should be) pruned annually to 7-12' producing as much as 200 Lbs of fruit per year. Seedlings start fruiting within 3-4 years. The tree is not as cold sensitive as it is thought to be, according to our experience. Mature trees can take some light freeze, smaller plants must be protected. Of course the compact size of the tree (especially when heavily pruned) makes cold protection much easier. Trees can be covered in case of cold, or even grown in large pots in cooler climates. You can't buy this in grocery store, so growing your own is the only option to try this tropical deliciousness! The plant requires soil rich of organic matter and regular watering. More info
