Banana Seed Germination Forum As one of the toughest seeds in the plant kingdom to figure out the keys to germination success with, this is a forum with banana seed germination tips. Please entitle posts like "Musa balbisiana," or "Musa cheesmani," etc. People would then post a reply under that heading, sharing their germination successes (and failures), what materials and methods they used, germination percentage, etc.

Default Which banana can reproduce but has the smallest seeds?

Kinda sucks that so many bananas cannot reproduce on their own. They are delicious but we have made them to dependent on us. (My opinion of course). I am searching for a banana I can grow in my garden that will be able to reproduce itself, that way it is far more sustainable to me and my family and well everyone here on this island at some point. So in need of a banana that can reproduce but is most edible in terms of seed size. TY!

My bananas reproduce themselves. ...???... I find baby-nanas at the base of mama-nana all the time. ... Daddy-nana is nowhere to be found, the SOB. (That is Son-of-Banana)

Most seeded banana are uses for textiles. Though I will occasionally find a seed in the Fe'i fruit.

While your question is broad your location will go along ways towards making recommendations. You will need varieties that fruit in a short season and in 8a will require cold protection. It will most likely be a two season venture. The first season you will grow a P-stem to be about 5 - 6 feet. Then protect it for Winter and it should fruit early, by July, and then mature enough to harvest before freezing temperatures. Also during that year you will select a pup to keep and protect for next year. Hope this helps. You the search engine and search some om my early posts on Winter protection.

That's false. Edible, seedless bananas 1st evolved without human intervention in portions of Burma and South East India. Human cultivation of these plants began perhaps 50,000 years ago.

Bananas with seed are bred for ornamental appearance, not taste.

Seedless cultivars are bred for taste produce so many offspring you'll be throwing some away each year.
