(aka: Musa 'Daj giant') We purchased these seeds from India as a naturally occurring giant hardy hybrid banana from India's Darjeeling Hills region, whose mama was the winter hardy Musa sikkimensis, but whose baby-daddy was unknown. We've had these in the garden since 2007, where they have achieved a height of 15' so far. Musa 'Darjeeling Giant' has nice red-purple leaf backs as the new foliage emerges, white wax on the trunks, flowers that are dark purple on the outside, and produce plants reach 20' in height.
