Also known as The Blue Java, the Ice Cream Banana tree is a hardy, cold-tolerant banana tree known for its sweet fruit, which has a vanilla-like custard texture and taste.

Popular as an ornamental plant, this tree has silvery-green leaves with bluish-green fruit – a beautiful indoor or patio plant!

Ice Cream Banana Tree Care

Water deeply 1 to 2 times per week for you plant to be at its healthiest. Bananas thrive in full sun, but can tolerate part sun as well. Add our balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting, in early spring, and late summer for best results. When grown in containers, fertilizer 4 times per year.

Planting

Plant your Ice Cream Banana tree in full sun with rich, moist but well-drained soil. If planting in a container, place your banana tree by a large sunny window.

Watering

Keep the soil moist but not oversaturated. 

Fertilizing

During the growing season, fertilizer your plant once a month. Fertilizer will have a recommended dose on the back of the bag, we recommend using half of that dose for best results. 

Maintenance

These are fast-growing trees. Remove any damaged or broken leaves. When possible, only remove leaves when they’ve yellowed or browned on their own. Leaves that are starting to shrivel usually loosen their grasp on the main stem, and they’re easily pulled off the plant at that point. If you can’t pull it off easily, leave it in place.

Once the plant has finshed producing fruit, it should be cut back to just over 30 inches tall. Let the stem dry out for a week or two. Once it is dry, rmove it. This will allow new banana tree stalks to grow.
