A Blue Banana That Tastes Like Vanilla Ice Cream – A Treat for Your Eyes & Your Palate

The ‘Blue Java’ Banana tree is unique. This fast-growing, cold-tolerant marvel from Asia and the South Pacific actually produces blue bananas that taste exactly like vanilla ice cream or custard. Many folks like to pick the ripe bananas and pop them in their mouths. Others suggest mixing the bananas into a smoothie or freezing them to make an all-natural ice cream alternative.

While you’re waiting for the fabulous treat to grow, you’re rewarded with a great looking addition to your yard. The tree showcases gigantic lime green leaves and a stout, sturdy trunk. Smart gardeners know the Blue Java’s well-developed root system will hold up well against the elements. The tree is happiest in moist soil and part to full sun.

    This plant was over 5ft tall (including the pot). Much larger than expected.

    This banana tree is beautiful.It looks exactly like the on line photograph.I can’t believe it traveled from the east coast to the west coast and still arrived in such great health.
    You really get what you Pay for here and it’s Worth Every Penny!
    The service is STERLING.
    I will never shop anywhere else for everyday or Hard to find nursery items.

    I was really worried about shipping this thing 1000 miles. FedEx ended up losing it and I was convinced I’d be left with a stalk when it got here. Well, I was wrong. It had 2 leaves. It’d be short timer, I was convinced. Fast forward a month. It’s added 6 new leaves (which my daughter loves documenting) and has added at least a foot of growth too. I wish I could rate this 6 stars.

    Follow the instructions on the site and give yourself plenty of lead time and you’ll be extremely happy with your purchase. The follow up emails on care from Plantvine have been excellent as well.

    From Lake Park, GA, my ice cream banana has been planted for a week now and has grown a foot!

  9. Steve G

    I live in the Northeast. Can I grown this indoors? If so, how tall will it get?

  10. Delaine

    How long will it take for the 4-5′ plant to bear fruit?

  11. David Munsell

    Can this banana be grown in a container? If so, how large does the container need to be and how tall will it get?

  12. Sherry Shaw

    Pollination. How is Blue Java Banana pollinated? Need I buy a male or female companion?
