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.

Question Musa paradisiaca royalii seeds

Hey all new to the forums. Have been looking around for a good seeded variety and found a variety from seedman known as Musa paradisiaca royalii or "Royal Sweet" for short. However when looking up info on this breed I have found hardly anything at all except for a webpage document from 04 claiming the name was a fake Musa paradisiaca royalii.
Was hoping someone with experience or knowledge with this variety could help me out.

Thanks all!

PS: If it's not worth getting these seeds what seeded variety would you recommend in it's place (I already have some velutina seeds). Thanks again!

Default Re: Musa paradisiaca royalii seeds

Not sure what that would be but I think, and I am not an expert, that paradisiaca is an old name that isn't really used anymore. See this promusa page:
