Common name of Musa basjoo

Bananier du Japon, Japanese banana tree

Origin of Musa basjoo

China

Hardiness of Musa basjoo

-10ºC to -15ºC, can be grown everywhere in France.

Description of Musa basjoo

It can reach several metres in height with 2- to 3-metre long leaves. Many offshoots quickly appear, forming a dense colony. Inflorescences can give small decorative but fibrous and inedible bananas in the coastal regions.

How to grow Musa basjoo

Grows very fast if you plant it in full sun, with abundant watering and fertilizing. Easy, low maintenance, a great classic.

The leaves freeze off, but new ones quickly appear in spring. However, avoid indoors use. Banana leaves freeze off in winter, but new leaves grow from the stem in spring, and new offshoots grow around the main stem. The stem that has borne the fruit dies, but the survival of the banana tree is ensured by the offshoots (avoid moving them the first year).

Story time

Despite its name, the so-called 'Japan' banana is native to China. This mistake comes from the fact that Europeans saw this banana tree for the first time in Japan, where it was widely grown for fiber extraction.
