For the BTD5 counterpart, see Long Life Bananas (BTD5).
Bananas last 30 seconds before rotting instead of 15.
~ BTD6 descirption

Long Life Bananas is the first upgrade on Path 2 for the Banana Farm in BTD6. This upgrade turns the bananas green, making them last for 30 seconds instead of 15 seconds.

Compared to BTD5, it costs cheaper, at $255 on Easy, $300 on Medium, $325 on Hard, and $360 on Impoppable.



Long Life Bananas increases lifespan of the bananas, allowing them to last longer before disappearing. It does nothing in terms of improving overall income, but rather this upgrade is purely for player convenience. By having this upgrade, managing between banana collection and defense micromanagement becomes more convenient; the player can focus on other defenses for a bit longer before going back to collect the bananas.


  • This upgrade is often considered to be one of the least effective upgrades to buy due to the Monkey Farmer automatically collecting the bananas in under a second, thus rendering this upgrade as a stepping stone to Valuable Bananas or Monkey Bank. Just like 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 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 Plantation farms.
  • Do not use this with Marketplace, as it does nothing to enhance the Marketplace in any way, wasting money, unless you go for Valuable Bananas.
