Also known as 'Blue Java,' 'Ice Cream' is a large banana variety with a very tropical look with long broad leaves, huge burgundy flowers and very tasty fruit. This is one of the larger bananas with a stout trunk, robust root system and a foliage mass that can reach 18' tall. It produces clusters of blue green-fruit, smaller than commercial varieties, with white flesh. As the name implies this banana tastes like ice cream and many believe it is the tastiest of the backyard bananas. Pl
Situate 'Ice Cream' banana in full sun to part sun and give the plant ample watering and fertilizer from spring through summer. Apply a heavy layer of mulch to the soil surface, but do not pile mulch against the trunks. As with all bananas, the fruiting stem will die after the fruits ripen, but new stems will sprout around the base of the main stem to rejuvenate the clump.
