Banana Plant Flowers and Fruits in Sheffield, Yorkshire UK For First Time in 5 years

Personal_Finance / Gardening Sep 03, 2017 - 03:38 AM GMT

Finally, and completely unexpectedly our Basjoo Banana plants have started to flower and fruit! The other day (25th July) we noticed that a new emerging leaf did not look quite right, instead we had the beginnings of a fruiting flower, and barely a 6 days on we noticed that another banana plant in a seperate container was ALSO showing signs of flowering! This was a big surprise, for the earliest we have seen banana plants fruit in Yorkshire was after 9 years of growth! As appeared on BBC Look North last year, so we are 4 years ahead of the fruiting banana tree curve!


So we went 5 years without any plant fruiting, and along come 2 within a week!

And here's our unfolding banana tree flowering and fruiting story in the North of England as it happened during August.

E1 - 6th August - First Signs of Banana Plant Flowering and Fruiting

E2 - 19th August - Flowering and Fruiting Basjoo Banana Plant in the UK

It's two weeks now since we noticed that our Basjoo banana plants were starting to flower and fruit, and boy do they grow fast, were seeing changes unfolding on a DAILY basis, and it looks like were going to get at least 3 flowers / bunches of bananas growing. So here's our fruiting and flowering Basjoo banana plants during week 2.

E3 - 21st August - Close Look at a Fruiting Basjoo Banana Tree as the Flower Unfurls

Here is a close early look at our flowering and fruiting banana plant, a good view of how a banana plant flower turns into a bunch of bananas. Yes we can see the first green short sticks that will turn into bananas, as the flower grows and unfurls.

E4 - 23rd August - Growing Bananas UK, Flowers and Fruits, Musa Basjoo

Here is episode 4 of our banana plant flowering and fruiting, here we take a look at the emerging banana fruits, the first ring of bananas with plenty more to come as the flower grows and unfolds.


E5 - 24th August - Growing Flowering / Fruiting Banana Plants in the UK

It's the 24th of August and the Banana plant flowers continue to change on a daily basis as the flowers reveal their fruit, fingers of green bananas.

E6 - 26th August - Growing Banana Plant Fruits in Containers - UK

We have 2 fruiting and flowering banana plants growing in containers. So in this video we reposition them so as the flowers are better visible, which is one of the advantages of growing banana plants in containers rather than in the ground because one can easily rearrange them. So remember that if you are considering planting banana plants in a container or the ground, that the container is definitely the more flexible option, which especially pays of when they start to fruit because you won't know which direction the flower will point in.

Ensure you subscribe to our youtube channel for more videos in this series to see how our Banana plants flower and fruit and also tips to get your own Bananas to flower and fruit.
