A Banana Tree with Grand Appeal
Now, you can create a tropical paradise right in your own backyard with the Grand Naine Banana Tree. A beautiful specimen, the Grand Naine’s gigantic, lush green leaves fan out and shade layers of bananas that hang in symmetrical clusters. Shortly after a lovely bloom of purple flowers, the bananas quickly begin to grow. Reaching a maximum height of 8 feet tall, the Grand Naine—with its long, graceful leaves amid bunches of bright yellow bananas--works well in a variety of planting locations.
Resistant to most diseases, the Grand Naine stands up to strong winds like no other banana tree can. Whether planted around the pool or on the patio, nothing accentuates the tropical mood you’ll achieve with the Grand Naine Banana Tree.
Yes, you will have many Bananas
Forget waiting for store bought bananas to ripen, or worse--throwing out mushy brown bananas. With the Grand Naine Banana Tree, those days are over. A variety similar to the famed Chiquita brand, the Grand Naine is a member of the Cavendish banana family. But the countless bananas you’ll enjoy will taste a whole lot sweeter than those from the local market, especially when you pick them ripe from your very own tree. These creamy, white bananas are substantial. And what’s more, the Grand Naine is the fastest producing banana tree available.
With incredible, visual tropical beauty and the most satisfying banana flavor imaginable, order several Grand Naines and create the backyard retreat of your dreams.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Grand Naine Banana Tree.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Grand Naine Banana Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Grand Naine Banana Tree again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
