For the BTD6 counterpart, see Long Life Bananas (BTD6).

Long Life Bananas is the first upgrade on Path 2 for the Banana Farm in Bloons TD 5. This upgrade makes the bananas produced from the banana farm stay on the screen for 20 seconds instead of the usual 10 seconds (25 in all Mobile versions). It is useful for people who don't want to place their mouse over the Banana Farms all the time and for people that use Dartling Guns.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This upgrade is often considered to be one of the least effective upgrades to buy due to the Monkey Farmer and the Bloonchipper (with the maxed out Specialty Building) automatically collecting the bananas in under a second, thus rendering this upgrade as a stepping stone to Valuable Bananas or Monkey Bank. Even on BTD5 and Battles Flash, your cursor should be able to collect bananas fast enough.
    • However, if you are unable to use Monkey Farmers due to agents/powers being disabled, it might be fine to get this upgrade to have more time to pick up bananas, especially if the player has tens of Banana Republic or Banana Plantation farms.
  • Do not use this with Marketplace, as it does nothing to enhance the Marketplace in any way, wasting money.
