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 Re: Sweet Plantain Banana seeds?

Most edible Banana, and Plantains are Hybrids unlike the wild seeded species. This makes most of them sterile without seeds, and unable to reproduce except for dividing plant suckers/pups, and you get an empty fruit with no embryos/seeds. The small black specks in a store bought banana are failed embryos, wild species musa seeds are usually large, and very hard and can break a tooth.

If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any Banana pudding! How can you have any Banana pudding if you don't eat yer meat?!

I second that. Anyway, why would you want seeds in your bananas? Isn't it better without?
