Default Which seed is really from Musa coccinea

Is the seed on the left or right those of Musa coccinea?

The ones on the left I picked up myself from a plant with a red flower similar like the coccinea flower, but the leaves were much smaller, less shiny and more round than another coccinea plant I saw.
Seeds on the right I got from a recognized online exotic seed store.
Anyone a guess for identification of both??

Thanks,

Yohan

The ones on the right are Coccinia . I asked gabe the same question. The other ones look more like Canna seeds than Musa.

I could be wrong though.

Mark, I think you are absolutely right about this point.
Now I am for 100% sure.
The left ones would be from a Canna indica then.

Thank you for helping me
