The banana tree is not referred to as a tree. Though we might call it a tree in non-technical terms, in technical terms, however, it is herb. The prime reason why it is not called a tree is because it never forms woody stems the way a normal tree does. Instead, it forms talks. Banana plants in warm climates tend to grow throughout the season.

Hence, they can be grown both in winters and summers. In botanical terms, the banana plant is referred to as herbaceous plant or herbaceous perennials. Again, this is because its stem does not have woody tissues in it.
