Question huge banana seed

So months ago I was looking to see exactly how one might go about growing bananas from seed because I was doing some research and I came across this video where this woman showed us some dirt and how to plop the seeds in some dirt like it was a cherry pit and like magic she had banana plants (nothing to it) but low and behold just like the cooking shows, she had a whole tray of already sprouted Bananas, to show us how to transplant the seedlings. The seeds must have been the size of walnuts, all the responders wanted to know what type of banana seeds they were, at that time there were no answers to the question and now since I can't find it again I may never know.

So can you tell me which banana (don't care what kind it is) has the biggest seeds. Maybe the size of walnuts or close? I wish I could find that video.

None the less in my research to find GOOD information on bananas I found "all of us" so it worked out in the end but the question is still rolling about in my head about those strange banana seeds

Sounds like the show was phony. I've seen photos of seeds from different 'nanners, and none of them were ever that large.

I've never seen ones as big as a walnut but the biggest I've seen are from ensete ventricosum. They are widely available on eBay and the net.
