Product Description

The Grand Naine is Top Banana

Why Grand Nain 'Naine' Banana Trees?

The Grand Nain is known for merging tropical-inspired good looks with easy care and fast fruiting. In fact, this long-leaved beauty yields large heads of flavorful bananas faster than any other tree, and produces well as a potted specimen...which means exotic fruit in even the coldest locations.

And since it's resistant to most diseases, the Grand Naine stands up to problems, including strong winds. Simply remove any damaged or worn leaves to stimulate the growth of new leaves, or even use them to wrap meat for your next barbecue. Seriously - there's nothing you can't do when it comes to the Grand Naine. During the growing season, you'll see fresh new leaves appear every few days.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

As a variety similar to the famed Chiquita, the Grand Naine is a member of the Cavendish family. But the countless bananas you'll enjoy will taste much 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 delicious. And what's more, the Grand Naine is the fastest-producing banana variety available.

Plus, because we've planted and grown our Grand Naines well for months, long before shipping, you get a proven performer. Supermarket trips are now unnecessary because you get an amazing producer right in your backyard. You won't get the same results from other nurseries or big box stores - we've meticulously monitored our Grand Naines for success.

With incredible, visual tropical beauty and the most satisfying banana flavor imaginable, Grand Naines are ideal to create the backyard retreat of your dreams. Order a few of your own today!

Pollination Info

Grand Nain 'Naine' Banana Tree Pollination

Grand Nain 'Naine' Banana Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Grand Nain 'Naine' Banana Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: When deciding where to plant your tree, keep in mind that they prefer full sunlight. They can tolerate partial shade, but need at least 6 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, and ensure soil is well-drained.

Once you’ve scouted your planting location, dig a hole that’s twice as wide as the pot and just as deep. Place your tree in the hole, and make sure that it’s level with the surrounding ground and that it’s standing straight up. Gently back fill the hole, tamping down to prevent air pockets and give your tree a long, slow drink of water.

Tip: Mulch the planting site to conserve water moisture and keep grass and weeds away from the tree.

2. Watering: Keep your soil moist, but not oversaturated. 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.

But if you're not sure when to water, simply check your tree's surrounding soil about 2 inches down. If the soil here is dry, it's time to water.

3. Fertilizing: 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 for best results.

4. 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.

Healthy and strong Grand Naine

I ordered 2-1 gallon banana. They arrived in perfect condition. Well packaged. It went through a little dry out from intense California heat but recovered well. It is now planted and doing well during our December month. I appreciate all the direction FGT provides in their trees from start to finish. I will update if possible.

So Far so Good

The tree arrived a day early, despite FedEx losing it for about 8 hours; it showed delivered at lunchtime - and SIGNED FOR - and didn't actually show up until late that night. Some of the leaves were a bit rough, but considering they're banana leaves and the tree is shipped in a 1'x1'x6' box I'm not really surprised (the additional cost of shipping it in a big enough box to let the leaves sit naturally can't really be justified, not to mention figuring out a way to keep it still in said box). I'm pretty pleased with the overall size; I bought the 5'-6' tree and expected something about 3' tall, what I got was something with about a 3' trunk and enough leaf up top to cover the difference. This does make me wonder if the roughly 8' max height is 8' trunk or 8' trunk + leaf. This is my first experience with FGT and I was very impressed by customer support when my package was missing, they offered to mail a replacement that day but I told them to hold off in case it showed up by the next day (which it obviously did). After reading other reviews I'm fully confident if I told them some of the leaves were snapped they wouldn't hesitate to send a replacement tree, but considering how healthy it is otherwise I'm honestly not worried about it. If my local nursery had banana trees I'd probably do way more damage trying to shove it in my car than this one suffered in transit.

My first Bananas

I am so excited! I have waited several years and watched my little stick with a few leaves grow into a beautiful huge plant! Now I have my first set of baby bananas! Patience has paid off.
