This cultivar is among the tallest growing bananas, can reach more than 7 m tall . The fruits are angular (though the name square banana)and get more than 8 inches in length and are very thick. Plant with fruits must be helped with a support, otherwise can easily fall down. The taste of the fruit is more delicate compared to other bananas.
