Banana Peel is not for the inpatient cultivator. Its flowering period takes as long as 10 weeks. However, the plant rewards growers with a hefty yield usually ranging between 12 to 14 ounces of buds per square meter on average.

Outdoor cultivators usually see the first flowers bloom around the second or third week of October. Once mature, growers harvest at least 14 ounces worth of buds per plant.
