Grand Nain ‘Great Dwarf’ Banana Tree – ‘Great Dwarf’ Live Chiquita Banana Plant
If you like the store bought ones, you will like the Home Grow ones even better! They taste so much better than store bought Chiquitas!
Chiquita Banana uses this cultivar in most of its production with good reason: it is has a delectable flavor. This is also a great selection for the home grower being that the plant is dwarf (6-8 feet tall) and while it’s not super tall it still produces very large heads of delicious bananas (enough to share with family and friends).

It is also wind resistant due to the size.
