We supply suckers that were bred from high-performing sucker-producing parent plants and they are reputed for rapid growth, early fruiting, and high yield potential.
- A sucker is a lateral shoot that develops from the rhizome and usually emerges close to the parent plant.
- The offered products are high-quality suckers that produce healthy fruits and conversely make cultivation a profitable one for farmers.
- Available suckers include banana, plantain, and pineapple suckers.
We sell in large quantities and we will be able to supply as much as you demand.
A sucker is a plant growth that develops from the rootstock of a plant that has undergone grafting.
- A sucker grows from the base of the root of the plant at a certain distance away from the plant.
- This undesirable part of the plant should be removed to prevent it from sucking away the plant’s energy.
- Rooted suckers can be dug up and planted elsewhere.
Plants that produce suckers
- Blackberries and raspberries boast an impressive list of about 250 species, all of which reproduce via suckers.
- Other types of fruit that produce root suckers are apple trees, blueberries, cherry trees, plantain, plums, pears, pineapple, and banana.
- In addition, several species of trees such as locust (Robinia) and elms (Ulmus) have aggressive roots that can spread via suckers.
- Other trees that reproduce using root suckers are Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima), chaste tree (Vitex agnus-castus), cottonwood poplar (Populus sp.), western redbud (Cercis occidentalis) and tallow tree (Sapium sebiferum).
- Both wild species of bananas and cultivated bananas produce suckers.
- The clump of plants formed by the parent plant and its suckers is commonly called a mat. The botanical term for a mat is genet, and for a sucker is ramet.
- Banana plants (Musa spp.), with sweet, nutritious fruit and attractive foliage, have many uses in the kitchen and home landscape.
- Suckers come in three different types, but only sword suckers, or those with a well-developed root system, grow into thriving banana plants.
- Maturity generally ranges from 15 to 24 months.
