Never thought that the Blue java banana, better known as the ice cream banana can be so tasty. Yes! just as it’s very cute name may reveal.
Let me first explain the reason of getting such a lovely name: Being flavored with hints of vanilla and the consistency of an ice cream made so many people compare its taste to an ice cream vanilla.
What about growing an own ice cream banana tree? Is that even possible?
Oh yes! With a temperature down to 20F /-7C and thrives outdoors, It will grow consistency up to 18 feet / 5,5 meters tall and 3 meters wide. As a tropical tree, it may stand in both fuller partial light and it can really mature quite fast in such conditions.
Don’t forget that a small pant will surely need time to grow ( around nine months) and beat fruit, but let me assure you that the blue java banana tree is a very generous tree with plenty bananas to harvest year after year.
I guess we are thinking the same now! Growing the tree, waiting for fruit…
Oh, wait for Cooking !! What is extremely awesome is the fact that it can be used in so many recipes:
