Truly Tiny Banana

Description
We're bananas about this plant, which produces the smallest edible banana fruit. The plants themselves grow between 2-4" tall on a sturdy, shrub-like central trunk, so they're excellent for containers with well-drained, sandy soil. 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. Musa 'Truly Tiny'
