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 Harvested too early, or are these seeds viable?

Sorry for the blurry pic, I picked this fruit from my Musa Velutina/Dasycarpa to see how the ripening is coming along. The fruit had no sweetness yet, but the seeds are very dark, do you think they are viable, and developed enough for germination?

They should be. I've germinated them out of fruit that wasn't quite ripe. Looks good to me!
