Musa sapientum 'Dwarf Red Dacca'
Select Store
Item code:

Red Dacca produces crops of small, very sweet bananas that have a creamy texture on a dwarf growing plant. The skin changes from burgundy to orange as they ripen and the flesh is pale orange-pink. Bananas require deep, rich soil which is well drained in a position which is in full sun for most of the day. A position close to a north facing wall is ideal. Protect from cold winds and frost, however Red Dacca performs well in cooler temperate climates.
