Yes, I agree. Also his profile lacks a great deal of information plus only this post. I hope I'm wrong, but it does not appear that way. Additionally, he has not responded to your Post.

Welcome to bananas.org, Henk.
Nice list. Please take a moment and introduce yourself properly in the Introductory Thread. Tell us a little more about the source of your seeds and why your source (or you) are trustworthy to buy from.
Myself, I don't do banana seeds because there are reputable sellers like Jon from "webebananas" in California or Don and Katie from "goingbananas" in Florida (just to mention a few), that sell plants and pups of the same varieties for only a fraction more what seeds plus shipping from overseas would cost, not to mention the risk of seeds getting confiscated because of non existing phytosanitary certificates.
Nonetheless, I wish you the best of luck and maybe if you start to post a little about yourself and participate in various discussions here on bananas.org, post photos etc., people might be less suspicious and might actually take the risk of growing musa from seeds.

I grow all my bananas from seed - for me that's the fun and the challenge. If people aren't growing Musa Rubinea, Arunachalensis, Coccinea, Zebrina, Ornata, Chunii then they are missing out. These would all be perfect for growing in a small garden and beautiful flowers.

Anyway that post did look a bit suspicious.

Don't limit yourselves to just growing bananas for fruit there is a whole world of species bananas out there.

Yes, you are right. I have recently started seeds to include ones I am unable to find as plants such as Helens hybrid. This is my first attempt with banana seeds, wish me luck.

Actually they do but they're not viable. A very nice little old lady who I caught snipping seed pods from my plants when I lived in MD (I didn't mind her pruning my plant but "snagged her" because I wanted to meet another gardener) grew a wonderful fig from a seed she saved from a dried fig served to her on a plane from her native Germany. Very rare for that to happen. Wish I still had my tree from hers or a start. Divorce stinks.

OK - you guys have perked my interest in growing musa from seeds. Thus far I've limited myself to edibles that might survive in zone 9.
I agree - the guy with the list is probably bogus..
So, where do members get your seeds? Anyone want to trade?
Is this a good source TopTropicals.com - rare plants for home and garden What do you recommend for zone 9 and beauty?
Thanks

Banana and Plantain Breeding Program at the Honduran Foundation for Agricultural Research (FHIA), starting in 2002, pollinated 20,000 bunches, approximately 2 million fingers, of the Cavendish cultivars ‘Grand Naine’ and ‘Williams’ with pollen from 10 Cavendish cultivars for the development of Cavendish tetraploids. As a result, 200 seeds with 40 viable embryos were obtained, from which 20 tetraploid hybrids were developed.




Stover and Simmonds (1987) indicated that the sterility of the clones cultivated for the international trade is a consequence of the high inherent female sterility. Within the Cavendish group, seed production was not observed in the many thousands of pollinations conducted.

A second exception came in the 1990s when FHIA obtained one seed from the cross of ‘Williams’ as female parent and ‘SH-3142’ as male parent; this seed developed into a tetraploid plant that was named ‘FHIA-02’.

Sure and 69 year old grandmothers get pregnant without medical/scientific assistance. I doubt the Cavendish seeds being offered are the result of a breeding program.

What's your point? Mine is that many fruits contain seeds but the overwhelming majority of those seeds will not grow any type of plant much less germinate. Even as I child I didn't believe you'd grow a watermelon plant inside of you if you swallowed the seeds. I wasn't so sure about apples or oranges but, after exhaustive "oops" tests, figured out that they were not "humanly invasive". Gum? Got caught with it in class a few times and made it disappear so I could honestly say "I'm not chewing gum". I am and have always been painfully honest--sometimes I'd kill to lie with a straight non flushed face as many others do. I was a bit concerned about the effects of that foreign substance for about a minute; my daddy was a PhD in physics and said that gum passed on through and I believed him because daddy's know everything or mine did.

Instead of continuing to write more nonsense just explain why you believe Cavendish are a seeded banana.

I would very much like to hear Kat explain his position and of course based on facts at least as well as pr has presented his position based on a cumulative of factual information.
