Red face Looking for banana seeds

Would love to add a variety of bananas to my front yard food forest.
Looking for seeds that would do well in Zone 10A in Southern California.

Welcome to the Bunch ... you have a lot to learn ... Seeded Bananas are not considered to be eatable. but, you can try & spit seeds like eating watermelon.
Eatable Bananas like Cavendish or Gran Nain can be found at you local Garden Center or Tropical nurseries.

The seeds he list are ornamental type Bananas. While ALL bananas are eatable, the seeded type are not desirable or grown for fruit. Eatable type bananas are sterile and propagated by division.

Yep, what you probably need to buy are corms and small plants. They grow fast especially in your zone. Check the for sale section on here for some reputable growers.

Sego Nursery in Valley Village not too far from you has a few varieties. But choose carefully . Sometimes they have mushy pseudostems.
