That doesn't mean that they can't produce seed as well, but a plant which can only produce fruit with seeds and can never produce pulpy seedless fruit would not be referred to as "edible". This seems to me to be a matter of understanding the common banana jargon rather than strict dictionary definitions. It's like asking a chef vs. a botanist what a "fruit" is, you will get two very different and possibly opposing, but correct answers.
