Yes you are probably right, at least he guarantees them so if they aren't Basjoo I'll ask for my money back.

Hi,

in 2011 I gave Helton one pup from my basjoo in Brazil. Now he informed that it has already flowered and is now setting fruits. But the seeds will not result pure basjoos, because the basjoo is pollinated by other banana species, Musa itinerans, Musa yunnanensis, Musa balbisiana, Musa sikkimensis Manipur and Musa thomsonii, even by fruit cultivars like Figo, Mysore and other. The seeds are open pollinated by other banana species in the nursery.

I told Helton that he may not sell the seeds, he should sow them out to get plants and to select the plants, because the plants are hybrids. Perhaps some of the basjoo seedlings might be the new hardy fruit bananas, perhaps some are parthenocarpic.

Best wishes
Joachim

Well they have arrived and I have to say they look a little like Basjoo seeds.
