Banana ‘Ice Cream’ (Musa acuminata ‘Blue Java’)
One of the most popular banana varieties, the fruit from ‘Ice Cream’ has a creamy, vanilla flavor, just like ice cream. It grows 10-12’ tall so once it reaches full size, it is ideal to plant directly in the ground for home gardens in southern zones or in large pots in northern conservatories or greenhouses. The large, showy leaves are silvery-green and the unripe banana fruit is silvery-blue before ripening to pale yellow. This is a wind resistant variety with a strong pseudostem and root system.
Hardiness Zone 9, 10
Bloom Season Intermittent
Sun Requirement Full Sun
Grows to 10'+
Minimum Temperature Indoors 40
  1. Happy Review by Elliot
    How do you rate this product?

    Very happy with everything Logees. I am tempted just to take a trip to CT to see it in person. My banana came with 3 leaves, 2 dead one broken, but the trunk looked good. couple weeks later has three new leaves and a fourth starting to grow. I have Viparspectra Grow lights and it loves them. Excited about the 2 other plants I just bought from Logees! :) Cant wait to get it outside this summer! (Posted on 12/7/2017)

    Excellent grower. A new leaf every week. The trunk is a nice red. The same red borders the leaves. (Posted on 7/30/2016)
