Cassabanana - Brazilian Giant

This plant is awesome!! I got two from Daleys and one makes ORANGE fruit (like the photo) and the other makes PURPLE fruit. Wow. It grows really well in the summer conditions here on the Sunshine Coast of QLD. Definitely needs a trellis to climb | Kevin Redd - Kiels Mountain, QLD 16-Jan-2017
