Blue Burmese Banana!!

Another great deal from the Heathcote Botanical Sale that was held at the Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce, Fl. this past weekend.

This banana tree is the Burmese Blue Banana. This banana tree is native to Tibet. The bananas are a bluish violet color when ripe and are used for cooking. The blue bananas are about 8 inches long. The tree itself can grow up to 18 feet tall!

I purchased this Burmese Blue Banana from a vendor named Anthony from Northlake Nursery in West Palm Beach, Fl. He has tons of great stuff at really great prices!!

Here are some pictures of my new Burmese Blue Banana Tree!!!
