Banana 'Dwarf Maoli' (Musa kaualau)
Sow Exotic now carries the rare Hawaiian 'Dwarf Maoli' Banana!
This unique Dwarf Maoli cultivar is native to Southeast Asia and the Pacific. It is a herbaceous plant that is fast growing,and grows to a mature height of only 7-14 ft tall. The Dwarf Maoli has large, thick leaves and because of this is capable of resisting strong winds. Like most other Musa species, the Dwarf Maoli cultivar requires plenty of sunlight, and moist, well drained soil.
What makes the Dwarf Maoli Banana so special is it's prized flavor and wonderfully rich yellow-orange fruit pulp. Don't let it's name fool you, these Bananas are huge and shaped like sausages, making them perfect for cooking!
