Description

Musa velutina is also known as the pink banana or hairy banana. The plants are originally from Assam and the eastern Himalayas. The fruits are 3 in (8 cm) long, pink, and fuzzy. They are borne on erect flower stalks with an attractive pink flower. Musa velutina flowers at a young age, doing so within a year! The fruits peel back when ripe.

It is often grown as an ornamental plant, but has soft, sweet flesh that can be eaten. The seeds are quite tough.

Plants may be placed outside during warmer months but should be taken into a conservatory or greenhouse or given other protection in winter. Musa velutina has received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Type: Tropical, patio or houseplant

Hardiness zones outdoors: 7b-11

Height: 5-7'

Seeds per pack: 10 (previously 5)

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Before planting, soak the seeds for 12-24 hours. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix and water in. Keep lightly moist. Keep at 20 to 25°C (68 to 77°F). Seeds germinate in 2-6 months.
