Pisang Ceylon banana growing in Southern California

Pisang Ceylon banana growing in Southern California


It's huge, about 8 to 12 feet tall (depending on how you measure it).
still has not fruited yet


Won't give the exact location but will tell you it's a little south of Irvine, about 12 to 15 miles away from the coast. The climate zone is solid zone 10, between 10a/10b.

It was sold as 'Pisang Ceylon', and while I am always skeptical, the exact leaf appearance seems fully consistent with other pictures of Pisang Ceylon I have seen. (i.e. It doesn't look like the average Icecream banana)
