Musa velutina – pink velvet banana

Musa velutina bud Musa velutina flower and fruit2

The amazing hardy banana, Musa velutina is full of flowers and fruit in the garden.  Here are photos I just took of it in both bud and in full fruit.  There are so many fruit, you’ll see pink from several hundred feet away…very attractive.  The bananas are full of small seeds, so we don’t recommend eating these unless you are extremely hungry.

  1. Hi- If I order and plant these this year, how long might it take to see actual fruit?
