Musa acuminata

William’s banana trees are slightly taller than other species of banana trees. It has excellent bunching characteristics and long fruit fingers, which measure up to 20cm long. The fruit is sweet and delicious.

 The Williams banana tree can grow in cooler environments and has good tolerance to winds.

 Bananas remain a first choice for a nutritious snack on the go and are still one of the world’s favourite fruits.

 Bananas have fibre, potassium, magnesium, manganese, and various vitamins. They moderate blood sugar levels, improve digestion, and may help with weight loss. They contain antioxidants.

 Our banana plants usually bear fruit the following season after planting. Protect in colder climates as they are sub-tropical.

 Make banana smoothies, add them to pancakes, fry them with bacon and eggs for a hearty breakfast, or bake them into a delicious banana bread loaf. Bananas are a popular way to sweeten dishes for those trying to keep their sugar (sucrose) intake down without missing out on sweet treats.

Position – Bananas prefer full sun or partial afternoon shade. It is not tall so that the Williams banana tree can withstand strong winds better than other cultivars.

Size – A mature Williams banana tree is between 2.5 and 3 mts tall and spread between 1.8 and 2.4 mts.

Soil – Well-drained soil with a pH range of between 6.5 and 8.

Use potting soil if growing your tree in a container. You could simply use your garden’s soil or a mixture of compost and potting soil to grow in the ground. Our volcanic rock dust is great for keeping your soil in optimal condition for a banana tree.

Watering – Keep the soil around your banana tree moist to ensure the roots do not dry.

Pruning – Remove damaged or worn leaves to keep your tree in tip-top shape. Pruning stimulates the growth of new leaves.

Pests – The Williams banana is resistant to most diseases. Keep an eye on your tree and look for small black bugs, aphids, and spider mite webs. Treat any of these with an organic pesticide.

Harvesting – From the time the flowers appear to the time the fruit is mature is usually 75 to 80 days. They are ready to pick when the fruit on the upper section changes from green to a light-green/yellow colour. The fruit will also have begun to plump up. Remember that bananas can also be used at various stages – even green bananas.
