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).

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!

It started out as a slow grower...but all of a sudden in the past week and a'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.

Healthy Rapid Grower
Got a healthy little plant well within the stated shipping time. It has been less than a week since I put it in the ground and it has already gained several additional leaves and almost doubled in height. Pretty amazing!

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 !

Bananas are slowly getting bigger. Guess it takes a few months for them to ripen.

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.

Planting & Care

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.

Makes a gorgeous indoor plant
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.

Sally G on May 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The outdoor growing zones are 9-11. Click the link to look up what growing zone you are in. 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.

Sun Kissed T on Jul 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can take 2-3 years to produce.
How often should I water my grand nain?
Petes on May 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 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.

Shashikant B on May 9, 2015

A shopper on Aug 24, 2014
