It's literally almost all seed.
I eat a LOT of challenging fruits, guava, sapodilla, jackfruit and more seeds don't bother me at all, we'll see :-) Thanks!

Haha, yes you will! It's nothing like those. I eat those as well, but these seeded bananas aren't like that...way more seedy. And the seeds will crack your teeth. But you can try if you want - I had to try myself to believe it.

Someone I know has a dwarf variety that has edible fruit. He calls it the Royal Red fruit. Has rather small slender fingers. He is in the process of making me keiki.
