If you’ve ever considered growing a container-garden of tropical fruit trees on your windowsill, I would recommend starting with two trees: first, the potted lemon tree (because I’m in love with the lemon, and that’s just that), and secondly, the banana.

I have to be honest, I don’t even like bananas. The flavor doesn’t do it for me. Not banana cream pie, not banana bread, not banana-flavored candy or fruity drinks (ew). I’ll eat it, but it’s just not my thing – so it took me YEARS before I started growing bananas along with my other windowsill trees. Once I did start, through, I was absolutely hooked. The banana tree is amazingly easy to grow, has tons of fun varieties to keep experimenting with, is wildly easy to propagate, and is a super cool conversation piece. For those wondering whether to start growing the banana in their house, the following FAQs answer some of the most common questions about growing dwarf banana trees.

It didn’t take long for the banana tree to become my favorite container-grown tropical fruit “tree” on my windowsill… even though I still don’t like banana cream pie. Have other questions? Let me know and I can add them to this post!
