The blue java banana is a banana species from Central America that has the unique flavor of ice cream and blue tinted skin. Alas, this fruit is not something we can already find at any grocery store.
Alex Peña, the owner of Tropica Mango Rare and Exotic Tropical Fruit Nursery , explains that temperatures in Arizona are actually very conducive to growing tropical plants. The weather does not get too cold -- which is the biggest danger. The extreme heat can be combated by just watering and micro-climate. Instead of planting the blue java bananas among rock and desert landscape, you create a micro-climate with other plants and ground cover.
Tropica Mango sells two sizes of these bananas trees. Their baby pups are not plantable size yet, but they will be in February. They also sell divisions of mature plants that have been growing at the nursery.
