Bananas are the most important and a favorite fruit of the United States, even though practically all banana fruit is imported from tropical areas. Most gardeners are surprised to know that even though tropical in nature, the banana tree can be grown to the fruiting stage successfully in much of the Southern U.S., surviving temperatures as low as zero degrees F. The flavor of home grown and tree ripened bananas will far surpass that of grocery store offerings, even though they are smaller but the fruit is loaded with a sweet flavor and a delicious taste. Aaron's banana tree nursery can deliver bearing size banana trees to your home, and if you give us a call, our experts will be happy to recommend the best banana tree cultivar to plant in your garden.
