The original Indian word "Kari" refers to the sauce of these piquant dishes, hence the name curry leaf.

Together with South Indian immigrants, curry leaves reached Malaysia, South Africa and Réunion island. An easy to raise plant, that needs full sun, grows to 1-3 feet in containers, minimum temperature 55°, blooms in summer. Use a soil mix consisting of 1 part peat moss to 2 parts loam to 1 part sand or perlite. The soil should be allowed to thoroughly dry between waterings.  The plant should be moved indoors during the winter months except in Southern Florida.

Banana Plant - var "Truly Tiny" - NEW FOR 2019!

If your climate gets a full winter, keep your containers indoors in a bright, well-lit sunny spot. Otherwise, they're suitable to grow outdoors in full sun on balconies, porches, or patios. The large, ovate leaves are deeply green and leathery, with purple-red variegation. The bananas, once grown, are tiny, deeply yellow, and edible! Until then, its dark green leaves make lovely décor if you'd like to bring the outside indoors. 

In India, where over forty varieties are cultivated, bananas are an integral part of the culture.  Upon attending an Indian wedding, one may see a banana stalk near the stage symbolizing fertility.  The wedding luncheon is often served on banana leaves in Southern India.

Banana plants love warm fertile soils with consistent moisture. Full sun exposures are best, a long growing season is required to set the flowering stalk and subsequent fruits.  Banana plants do best in tropical and subtropical climates, but can be grown in large containers in the Northern United States.

We will ship out saplings 4-5" tall.
