Once only allowed to be grown by members of the Hawaiian Royal Family, this stunning variegated banana sports various shades of green highlighted with creamy white. Even the fruit is decorated with variegation! Give it a little shade to keep the white areas from burning. This plant also prefers a moist, acid soil. It is slow to pup, but worth the wait!
Here is a picture of some of my Ae Ae bananas. The tallest is now just finished ripening its large crop The pups are coming on strong. And a tree just behind these has a nice bunch of fruit coming along. I have five pots of pups ready to sell. Send a message if interested to: email@example.com

Variegated Hawaiian Banana
Yes folks, this is where the familiar fruit comes from that we all slice up into our cornflakes.
There is a corm in the center of this pot that shoots the occasional all white Ae-Ae.

AE AE April 2009--sprouting out for the season
Grown in the ground outside in Southern California.
This one died shortly after being shipped. AeAe's are not a good investment as they can be very fussy.
The white part of the leaves burn easily in full sun.
Doing well in the ground in Zone 10. This survived its first winter in the ground here in Ventura County. It's planted next to our chicken coop and may get some heat from the area.
