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.

Banana leaves are huge and can sometimes get crinkled in shipping. Simply remove any damaged or worn leaves to stimulate the growth of new leaves. Use them to wrap meat for your next barbeque. During the growing season you will see fresh new leaves appear every few days.

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).

Nice
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.

Amazing growth and hardiness !
I live in Key West Florida and purchased several banana varieties from Fast growing Trees. I live directly on open sea water with a sea wall along which I planted alternating clumps of Malaysian green coconuts, Grand Naine, and Ice Cream Bananas. Unfortunately we then suffered a week of salt water over wash due to the moon and high tides positioning . I lost all the Ice Cream bananas but, amazingly, the Grand Naine bananas lost all their leaves but sent up new sprouts from their bases. In three years I have gone from three fragile bananas to one huge clump with five banana stalks fruiting 30 to 100 bananas a stalk plus numerous new plants developing every day. I have done no feeding or fertilizing but do water at least twice weekly. Well worth the initial investment !

Planting & Care



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


Grand Nain 'Naine' Banana Tree Planting Diretions

The Grand Nain Banana (Musa acuminata) is a compact banana tree that brings a tropical feel to your landscape and produces delicious bananas. Growing outdoors in USDA zones 9-11, this small banana tree is also great for containerizing as it only reaches a mature height of 6-8 feet, but the large leaves give it an impressive span of 8-10 feet wide. If you’re in a colder climate, your banana tree needs to be brought in during the winter months as the tree is only cold tolerant down to 30 degrees. This fast growing tree is more wind resistant than other varieties of bananas so it can be placed in a more open setting with less wind protection.

Location: When deciding where to plant your banana tree keep in mind that they prefer full sunlight. They can tolerate partial shade, but need at least six hours of sunlight a day. Banana trees don’t like extreme heat, so afternoon shade will be more beneficial for your tree than morning shade. Avoid areas that receive high winds. Heavy winds can cause the leaves to rip. If kept indoors place your banana tree by a large sunny window.

Planting Instructions:
1) Once you’ve scouted your planting location, dig a hole that’s twice as wide as the pot and just as deep.
2) Take a pitchfork or shovel and loosen the soil around the sides of the hole. Remove any debris, like dirt clumps, grass, or rocks.
3) Remove the plastic container from your tree’s roots and gently comb though the roots to help free them up a bit.
4) Place your tree in the hole, and make sure that it’s level with the surrounding ground and that it’s standing straight up.
5) Gently back fill the hole, tamping down to prevent air pockets and give your tree a long, slow drink of water.
6) Mulch the planting site to conserve water moisture and keep grass and weeds away from the tree.

Watering: Banana trees like water, they’re generally pretty thirsty. However, they don’t do well in standing water or areas that are prone to flooding. Be careful not to over water your tree. Keep your soil moist, but not over saturated. Water your tree every 2 to 3 days during the summer, and every few weeks in the winter, depending on your climate. Warmer areas that are more prone to drought will require water more frequently. If your tree is in a shady area it will most likely require less water.

Fertilizer: Banana trees are often as hungry as they are thirsty. Give your tree a well-balanced organic fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Fertilizer will have a recommended dose for the size of your tree on the back of the package. We recommend giving your tree half of that dose to avoid root burn. Once your tree flowers switch to an organic fertilizer that’s low in nitrogen. If a banana leaf drops, leave it. Banana leaves provide excellent natural resources as they decompose.

Weed Control: Keep weeds at bay by placing a three inch layer of mulch around the base of your tree. This will prevent weeds from growing around your tree and stealing nutrients from the roots. Mulch will also help your soil retain moisture.

Pruning: Remove any damaged or broken leaves that hang downwards. After your tree produces fruit trim it back to about 30 inches tall, and let the stem dry out for a week or two. Once the stem has dried, remove it. This will allow new banana tree stalks to grow. Once a stem fruits, it won’t produce again.

Pests and Diseases: If your banana tree has a pest, they’ll be visible. Keep an eye on your tree and look for small black bugs, aphids, or webs on the leaves for spider mites. If your tree has pests simply spray it with an organic pesticide. If the leaves are discolored with spots or streaks or your fruit starts turning brown before it’s mature remove the infected items and spray your tree with an organic fungicide. Bugs, molds, and fungi are extremely easy to treat on Banana trees.

Pollination: Banana trees are self-fertile and actually produce fruit without pollen. The flower grows and sets fruit all on its own.

I have a question about how you grow your banana trees indoors or outdoors? I live in California is that not a good place to grow bananas?
18benjathom on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All is not lost but you have to wait a little longer. Your type of tree takes 2-3 years to mature and bear fruit. You are okay for a patio tree but outside growing zones is 9-11.

It is always good to read all of the information from Fast Growing Trees before making a purchase.
are they organic? and pre-planted in organic soil with no pesticides?
Janel C on Apr 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: To comply with USDA phytosanitary regulations, we are required to apply a mild chemical treatment to all trees shipped over state lines. This treatment is required to prevent the spread of potentially devastating pathogens from one state to another and is mandatory for all growers. Once your trees arrive, you can use all natural and organic growing techniques to grow organic fruit.

http://www.fast-growing-trees.com/USDA-Plant-Hardiness-Zone-Map.htm For zones 4-8 you would need to bring indoors in the winter.
So, if I understand it right. I buy the tree. Plant it, take care of it and eventually it will produce bananas, but only once?
Rich R on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: After your tree produces fruit trim it back to about 30 inches tall, and let the stem dry out for a week or two. Once the stem has dried, remove it. This will allow new banana tree stalks to grow. Once a stem fruits, it won’t produce again, but will produce other stems, that will produce banana's.
