Grand Naine Banana
Fastest Growing Banana Tree- Anywhere in the US!
The perfect tree for banana lovers. Grow your own bananas if you live in Florida, North Dakota, or anywhere in between. And not just ornamental bananas, either... sweet, delicious bananas that taste better than anything shipped to your local grocery store.
In zones 8 to 11, the Grand Naine Banana Tree can be planted in the ground where it can grow as high as 8 to 10 feet. If you live in a cold climate, simply plant the banana in a 20 inch pot and grow it on the patio during the warmer months. In either case, expect up to 50 bananas the very first year!
It can grow up to one-inch per day and produces big, beautiful leaves as quickly as one per week. When grown as a patio plant it makes a great conversation piece and a lovely decorative accent. Just wait until your guests try the bananas it produces! As a garden plant, the Grand Naine Banana Tree makes a wonderful windbreak or privacy screen.
In pots, use a high quality potting soil in a 20 inch (or bigger) container. Water daily and fertilize with plant food once a week. When the temperature dips below 50 F, it is best to bring the plant into the house. The plant will not survive freezing temperatures. During the winter months, trim back the plant. Outdoors, the Grand Naine Banana Tree should be planted in rich, well-drained soil.
