Hello Naz,
That is a great collection of Musa species! Many of those are difficult to find and obtain. Most all Musa species are seeded, except for food crop Musa acuminata x balbisiana varieties, which must be seedless to be edible. Because of this, they have to instead be grown from vegetative means such as a root corm or a plant as they produce few if any viable seeds. I believe Dwarf Red is an edible variety that is seedless, and must be bought as a plant or root corm. Several nurseries that offer many different varieties:

Ebay and Amazon are also two other great places to look for unique and different varieties. Hope this helps! Best wishes
