Musa dajiao is a special banana variety. Da means "big" and jiao = "banana". It is a cross between the Musa sikkimensis and Musa balbisiana. This banana grows very fast and you do not have to wait long for a big banana.
The underside of the banana leaf is set with a white haze.
It is a large, well-edible banana that tends to "Namwah" in taste. The Musa dajiao must be able to overwinter frost-free.
In the open ground in winter, this banana would freeze all the way to the ground. This is not fatal for the banana plant, it will come back from the roots in the spring.
The banana plant would not produce bananas because it must be at least 2 years old to be in bloom.
The Musa dajiao comes from China and the banana is used a lot for consumption. When shipping the bananas in a package, it is possible that we are cutting back the sheet of bananas. These grow back very quickly.
Winter hardness zone 11 (+ 5ºC).
