Bananas grow great in Northern parts of NZ, particularly the lady finger varieties.  They thrive in warm, sheltered conditions and require plenty of compost, mulch and water.  They are considered heavy feeders, the more you feed and look after your bananas the more fruit you will get.  Bananas will form a clump in no time and it is important to keep on top of the clump to ensure good fruiting.  Ideally you want to keep your clump to 3-5 main stems.  Any extras can be removed and mulched back around the clump.



Pisang Awak (Ducasse) - A favorite dessert banana originating from SE Asia, produces large bunches of small, sweet bananas. This variety is relatively cool tolerant and a vigorus grower here in Gisborne, although good wind protection is recommended. Grows to 3-4m high
