Given the very, very, very narrow geographic area the said seeds are from.....you would think the folks in California would know where the origin is of their expensive seeds
A drill down into the area which said seeds are found will expose the orgin of the plant.......even shows an Orangutan smoking one.

It is NOT only that one particular variety, they are looking for lots of pics being the point.

Do you work for Trade Winds Fruit? You said "We" in your statement. I got some of my garden seeds from them. Their prices are fairly reasonable.



Have you ever tried to germinate a banana seed? .... Try it some time, I think you would find it is damn near impossible. The germination rate is very low. .... So out of a pack of 5 seeds ($6), I think the odds of getting a growing banana plant is near ZERO. .... I believe this is because the seeds have dried out and not still wet from a fresh banana.

That is not what Trade Wind's actual ad said. You stated it in your post: "... for this plant ...".

I copied and pasted what was on the page, no I don't work for them thought someone that had a lot of varieties of banana might want some store credit, was trying to be nice to people, guess that's a foreign thing now days.

Then you should have given credit where credit is due by stating their statement was quoted from their website. .... I have a lot of varieties, but none of desirable 'eating' type bananas have seeds.

Me......I will keep on drilling the area....
I am perplexed by the name though......
The pro growers will settle the Q?

Seafood is awesome in the small seaside dives that are associated with the area search.
