There are all kinds of banana trees, some fruiting and others ornamental. I presume you want one that will bear fruit. Here in Texas you can sometimes have fruit. It depends on whether it froze last year or not The varieties here take about 18 months to mature enough to bear fruit, if they don't freeze. Growing a large banana tree in a container, even a big container will be iffy at best. Some people wrap newspapers around the trunk when it is going to freeze and have limited success in keeping the tree from freezing. If a banana tree freezes that doesn't necessarily mean it is dead. It usually just turns to mush and comes back from the roots and the 18 month process starts all over againI was told they only grow in tropical places like Jamaica would they die in Mississippi in a container or what?
