Musa 'Truly Tiny' is THE SMALLEST fruit-producing banana (fruit will only produce in areas with long, hot summers; probably won't produce in the Pacific Northwest unless grown in a greenhouse.). This can be grown as a houseplant as long as there's VERY bright direct sun...south facing window is a plus. 

Mature leaves are green with maroon mottling. Bananas are heavy feeders and should be fertilized regularly.
