Juma's survival guide
Like his brother Baloo (the Musa Dwarf Cavendish), Juma also came from the jungle. And boy, has she traveled: from Java, Indonesia, her habitat, she was one of the first banana subspecies to be spread by humans out of Southeast Asia. Which makes her the great-great-great-grandmother of the Bananas family tree. Now that's Bananas!
Our Care App will help you after your purchase.
What makes Juma so special
The name Blood banana might sound aggressive but rest assured. The origin of the Blood banana name, though, is actually cute: when Juma's leaves grow, they have this beautiful, dark red colouring to them! Ok, that's less dramatic than the Great War for the throne of the Plant Kingdom, but you can't beat beauty.
