Default Cleaning Banana Seeds

Does anyone have any tricks or techniques to clean banana seeds? I would like a quick process to separate them from the pulp. I have many musa velutina bananas from which I need to get seeds clean. Thank you.

Austin, in the past I have let them soak in some water for a week or more, letting the fruit ferment a little. Then shake them up really well, get in there with a fork or other utensil and try and separate the fruit from the seeds. This process might take a couple of weeks, but eventually the fruit will separate from the seeds. Then just decant the fruit off the top by swirling the bowl/jar.

I've also let the fruit dry and them pick the seeds out, but this seemed more tedious than the other way I mentioned. There really is no quick, easy way.

Thanks a lot, Frank, for your expertise. I will give it a try. It's very time consuming, but I want to get all the seeds I can from my plants. Cheers!
