The Dwarf Cavendish banana (Musa acuminata) is a compact variety of banana plant known for its shorter stature and suitability for smaller growing spaces. Typically reaching heights of 4 to 7 feet (1.2 to 2.1 meters), it is considerably shorter than standard banana plants, making it easier to manage and harvest.

The Dwarf Cavendish produces medium-sized, sweet bananas that are commonly found in grocery stores. It has broad, green leaves that can develop a red or purple tinge when young. The plant thrives in warm, tropical to subtropical climates and requires well-draining soil, plenty of sunlight, and consistent moisture.

This variety is popular among home gardeners and commercial growers alike due to its manageable size, productive yield, and resilience against certain diseases. It can also be grown in large containers, making it suitable for indoor or patio cultivation in cooler climates. With proper care, the Dwarf Cavendish banana plant can produce fruit in about 9 to 12 months.
