THE GRAND NAINE IS TOP BANANA

Here's why:

  • Long leaved Banana Tree with amazing green color
  • Beautiful, tropical tree with excellent wind resistance
  • Yields large heads of flavorful bananas faster than any other tree
  • Grows and produces well as a potted specimen

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.

Grand Naine Banana Tree
I was dubious about ordering a live tropical Banana plant, but it was delivered in a superb packing container, which protected the plant very nicely. I had the Grand Naine banana plant in the ground and blooming new foliage in no time. Excellent customer service, Great care in shipping, Speedy Shipping, and Fine Healthy plants, I only regret not ordering the Ice Cream Banana Plant before the October deadline :-( (Next Year for sure).

Great tree and doing well!
Must be careful not to over water.
Protocol was dilution of fertilizer every other day when first planting or repotting. That's probably too much.
Maybe twice a week is better and then depending on where you live, once a week after the first month during the growing season is best and cut back during the approach of fall and winter to twice a month, taking how much it rains where you live.
Love it and doing well!

Love it!
It started out as a slow grower...but all of a sudden in the past week and a half...it's getting bigger, fast. It has a different look than the other banana trees I have - and that's exactly why I like it. Great plant and growing like crazy. Glad I bought it.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Grand Nain 'Naine' Banana Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Grand Nain '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.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Grand Nain '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.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


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 Nain 'Naine' Banana Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
