Pink Fruiting Hardy Banana. This cold hardy pink fruiting Banana can freeze to the ground and come up in the spring and be in flower by mid summer and shortly thereafter fruit are formed. The bright pink fruit are actually edible, but they are about 10% pulp and about 90% seed. Shortly after they ripen, it looks as if a bevy of monkeys climbed on it overnight and partially pealed each fruit, so that the white flesh of the fruit is jumping out of the bright pink skin. It is a good moderate grower of 6-9'. and the heavily textured foliage adds quite the tropical touch around the swimming pool or fish pond in the summer.
