Banana yucca fruit is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Like all other Mojave Wasteland plants, ripe banana yucca plants found in the wasteland will eventually regrow after the Courier picks them, making them an unlimited supply of free food. Picking one plant yields one fruit.

Banana yucca fruit is an ingredient in the gecko kebab and slasher campfire recipes.
