Plant your Banana Saplings on the Farm, Greenhouse, or Island Farm!

The first step to growing these tropical trees is to plant its sapling on the untilled ground of the farm, greenhouse, or on Ginger Island. Note that it can only grow at the center of a 3×3 grid, wherein each square must be kept clear from terrain features, floorings, and objects.

After successfully planting the sapling, watch it undergo its five stages of growth within 28 days. 

Here are the following Growth stages of the Banana Tree in Stardew Valley:

Stage 1

The first stage starts once you plant a sapling on the ground. This whole process takes seven days, and in that time, it won’t produce any crops yet. 

Stage 2

Its height, trunk, and leaf size will increase in the second stage. Moreover, it’ll also stay in this stage for seven days.

Stage 3

In the third stage, there’s only a slight difference in its appearance. Moreover, this stage will start 15 days after planting and will only last for seven days.

Stage 4

Compared to earlier stages, the number of leaves and height of the trunk will significantly increase at this phase. But this will likewise take seven days, just like the preceding stages above.

Stage 5

This final stage of its growth starts 28 days after plowing the seed on the ground. At this point, it has reached its maximum height and size. It can also produce one crop per day now throughout its harvesting season.

If this isn’t in Ginger island or Greenhouse, it stops bearing fruit when the season changes. Its appearance doesn’t change much during the Spring and Fall. However, when Winter comes, its leaves disappear and only return once the cold season is over.


Do Banana Trees need to be watered?

Fruit Trees, in general, don’t need to be watered in the game. After planting it on the ground all you need to do is watch it grow. They will naturally mature after 28 days and produce one crop a day as long as it’s in season. 

Can you use Tree Fertilizers on a Banana Tree? 

According to the 1.4 update of Stardew Valley you can’t use Tree Fertilizers on any Fruit Tree. You may only sprinkle this on Wild trees to ensure it grows rapidly even during the winter. Unfortunately, there aren’t any fertilizers yet to speed up the growth of Fruit Trees.

When were the Banana Tree and Banana first introduced? 

The game’s developer recently added them in the latest 1.5 Stardew Valley update. It all started from a Twitter poll by Eric Barone, aka “ConcernedApe,” wherein the Banana was dubbed the poll’s winner. 

The next tree added by the creator in the new update is the Mango Fruit tree since it’s the poll’s second runner-up. On the other hand, the creator dropped the following fruit tree of Avocado and Passion Fruit after gaining the least amount of votes.
