Grand Nain

Ginosar Agro offers several select clones of the Grand Nain variety.

Grand Nain is a popular variety worldwide, mainly in India, due to very high yields and agility.

Giant Grand Nain

Ginosar bred the Giant Grand-Nain cultivar which is unique for its extraordinary bunch weight, resulting from its large number of hands and its long banana fingers. Giant Grand Nain gives very high yields and is popular for mono-crops or short-period plantations in high density.


Zelig is an elite cultivar from the Grand-Nain family. It is shorter in height and therefore more resistant to winds. It is also especially agile and can yield 2 bunches in 16 months, even under subtropical conditions (cold season). Its bunch is characterized by many banana fingers.

Ziv (Williams)

Ziv is a Ginosar clone selected from the world's most popular export variety - the Williams. Williams is most popular in central and south America due to the export-quality bananas it produces.

Williams is favorable due to its resistance to drought, hard climate conditions and problematic soils.
