'Saba' banana comes to us from the Philippines, where it is common staple of their diet. 'Saba' is a very sturdy plant and can grow to up to 25 feet tall! This banana has good cold tolerance and wind resistance. The trunk can grow as thick as 24 inches wide! The short stout bananas make excellent tostones. The male flower can be cooked and eaten too.
