Mysore Bananas are vigorous growers that produce sturdy trunks, dark green leaves, and most importantly flavorful, nutritious bananas. Mysore Bananas can be grown in the ground in USDA Zones 8 to 11, or in pots within Zones 4 to 11. The plants are disease-resistant and the large bunches of bananas ripen to a smooth texture with a slightly acidic sweetness. Mature Mysore Banana Trees can produce as many as 300 bananas when they bloom.
Mysore Banana Plants like full sun, frequent deep watering, rich, well drained soil, and high amounts of fertilizer and organic compost. Each Mysore Banana plant grows a colony of psuedostems from a psuedobulb, and after each stem fruits, it dies to be replaced by a new trunk. Grow this ever-producing, high-quality eating banana in your garden and have plenty for your own table and to share with friends.
