Banana Loaf is a 60% sativa hybrid cannabis strain that was bred by crossing Banana OG with the legend that is El Chapo. Experience outrageously ripe banana fruit matched by the potency of El Chapo with its Headbanger heritage.
Banana Loaf is suitable for cultivation both indoors and outdoors although the longer-flowering phenotypes might be more suitable for warmer, Mediterranean climates. The usual length of flowering indoors is between 8 – 11 weeks with high yields of very sticky, resin-coated buds such that extract makers’ interest is bound to be piqued.
The predominant taste is that of very ripe bananas with some funky, earthy Kush notes. THC production is likely to hit and even exceed 20% giving an uplifting and euphoric effect that will produce giggles as well as the munchies while even inspiring creativity amongst artistic types.
Love the look of lush tropical foliage? There is a plant that can help transform your garden landscape into a bit of the Hawaiian tropics, even if your winters tend to be less than balmy. The genus Musa are cold-hardy banana plants that grow well and overwinter up to USDA plant hardiness zone 4. You may need some space for growing a cold hardy banana tree though, as most specimens attain heights of 12 to 18 feet (3.5 to 5.5 m.).
Hardy Banana Tree Growing
These fruitless hardy banana tree species have been grown in the Ryukyu Island of Japan since the 13th century, and the fiber from the shoots is used in the weaving of textiles or even to make paper.
Hardy Banana Types
The hardy banana tree is actually an herbaceous perennial (the world’s largest) despite being referred to as a tree. What looks like a trunk is actually tightly bound banana tree leaves. This “trunk” is botanically referred to as pseudostem, which means false stem. The interior of the banana tree pseudostem is where all the growth of the plant takes place, similar to a canna lily.
