Ensete ventricosum, commonly known as enset or ensete, Ethiopian banana, Abyssinian banana, pseudo-banana, false banana and wild banana, is an herbaceous species of flowering plant in the banana family Musaceae. The domesticated form of the plant is cultivated only in Ethiopia, where it provides the staple food for approximately 20 million people. The plant is usually found in high-rainfall forests on mountains, and along forested ravines and streams.

Please note that oversized plants in 30L pots are for local delivery only. For shipping outside Manawatu, the plant will be transferred to a suitable planter bag and plant may be trimmed to fit into our standard boxes (1-1.2m tall).
