When you grow your own Grand Nain bananas, they won't have blue stickers, but you will "find a better-tasting banana inside" (Chiquita Banana Jingle). The Grand Nain is Chiquita Banana's go-to cultivar. French for "large dwarf," it grows to a dwarf height of 6 to 10 feet and yields large bunches of delectable fruit.
Average mature height: 6-10 feet
Fertilizer: N/P/K (Nitrogen/Phosphorus/Potassium) in a 3/1/6 ratio
Light: Mostly sunny
Soil: Good water-holding capacity
