We bought a banana tree in March as soon as we discovered bananas would grow in San Diego because I love bananas but I don't love buying them because they are almost always shipped from Ecuador or Peru and I would rather eat more local than that.
We got a variety called Ice Cream which is a very nice tasting small banana. It's been fun and interesting to learn how to care for it.

|We planted it in well draining soil in a sheltered place next to our garage in full sun|

|This is the plant as of yesterday with a tomato in a pot in front of it.|
