Hybrid Banana Sucker


Hybrid Banana Sucker is a lateral shoot that develops from the rhizome and emerges from the soil usually near the parent plant. It is a form of asexual, or vegetative, reproduction, that makes the banana plant perennial. Suckers emerge and ensure a more or less continuous supply of shoots, each capable of producing an inflorescence. They have been used as planting material since the early days of domestication by severing them from the mat and transplanting them to a new location.

Both wild species of bananas and cultivated bananas produce suckers. The clump of plants formed by the parent plant and its suckers is commonly called a mat. The botanical term for a mat is genet, and for a sucker is ramet.

Hybrid banana suckers are a type of banana plant that is produced by cross-breeding two different varieties of bananas.

This results in a plant that is more vigorous, resistant to pests and diseases, and produces larger and sweeter bananas.

They are also easier to grow than traditional banana plants, making them a good choice for home gardeners.

To grow hybrid banana suckers, simply plant them in a sunny spot with well-drained soil.

Water them regularly, and fertilize them every few weeks with a balanced fertilizer. It will typically begin to produce fruit within a year of planting.

Additional tips for growing:

  • Plant It in the spring or summer.


  • Choose a planting site that is in full sun and has well-drained soil.


  • Amend the soil with compost or manure before planting.


  • Space hybrid banana suckers 8-10 feet apart.


  • Water hybrid banana suckers regularly, especially during the first year after planting.


  • Fertilize hybrid banana suckers every few weeks with a balanced fertilizer.


  • Mulch around hybrid banana suckers to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
