The aim of this work was to evaluate the performance of fourteen genotypes of banana tree, in the North Region of Paraná State, Brazil. The experiment was installed and carried out, without irrigation, in a commercial field located at Andirá, PR, Brazil, from 2007 to 2009. A completely randomized design with eight replications and one plant per parcel was used. The genotype FHIA 17 was outstanding of the rest presenting the best set of agronomic characters. The genotypes PA42-44, PV94-01 and 'BRS Princesa' presented similar characteristics to the controls of the same sub-group 'Prata Anã', 'Pacovan' and 'Maçã', respectively, being alternatives of grow by its resistance to the black and yellow sigatokas and fusarium wilt.
