How do bananas grow? A banana plant takes about 9 months to grow up and produce a bunch of bananas. Then the mother plant dies. But around the base of it are many suckers, baby plants.
At the base of a banana plant, under the ground, is a big rhizome, called the corm.
The corm has growing points and they turn into new suckers. These suckers can be taken off and transplanted, and one or two can be left in a position to replace the mother plant.
Great, so now you know what to do once you have bananas growing in your garden, but how do you start?
How to get started growing bananas. Bananas can handle extreme heat (if they have enough water), but they don't like it. They can handle cool weather for a short while, but they don't like that either.
You need very rich soil. If you don't have good soil to start with, make some. Planting bananas You can not grow good edible bananas from seeds. Keep the fertilizer close to the trunk as bananas don't have a big root system.
Growing banana fruit You may see your first flower emerge after about six months, depending on the weather. Leave the leaves around it, especially the one protecting the top bend of the stalk from sunburn! As the purple flower petals curl back and drop off they reveal a "hand" of bananas under each. Each banana is a "finger" You may get anything between four to a dozen or more full hands. Then, under the next petal, you'll see a hand of teeny weeny excuses for bananas. Those are the male fingers. The male fingers just dry and drop off. Only the stalk remains. They will eventually ripen on the bunch, and those bananas taste the best.
You can also cut the whole bunch and hang it somewhere if you need to protect it from possums or birds or other thieves. But then all the bananas will ripen at once! So be prepared. You can preserve bananas for use in cooking and baking by peeling and freezing them. Or, to preserve them for eating, peel, split in half lengthwise and dry them.
