Ethiopian Banana



The Ethiopian banana in Ethiopia constitutes an important source of food, because the roots of the species can be eaten. The banana grows in moist woods along hillsides and rivers, and it can reach a height of about six meters. The five meter long leaves have a reddish midrib and the bananas are edible, but also full of seeds. 

The species can also be kept as a container plant with a minimum temperature of 5 degrees Celsius and thus remains a lot smaller.
