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 Totally confused on if a type grow from seeds or suckers?

Guys, i am totally new to banana plants(even my general experience with any plants or seeds) Anyway still wanna grow banana plants. After doing some online researchs i totally confused about which type of plants can be grown from seeds and the ones only can be grown from suckers..?

As i understand 'edible' term is used for the banana plants whose fruits don't have seeds. ( therefore these plants can not be grown from seeds right?) And 'inedible' term is used for opposite way right? After assuming this... How come i come across seeds of edible called type of banana plants being sold online?

For example i ordered seeds for Dwarf Cavendish and also Blue Java from a seller in my country? But both of these fruits are called edible what i read on internet... I am being scammed or what?

anyone help me out from this confusion? Thanks.

The fruit is not inedible as in making you sick,- in·ed·i·ble/ˌadjective - not fit or suitable for eating. It is hard to eat because it is full of the seeds it grew from.

Thanks Mike. Blue Java and Dwarf Cavendish are edible cultivars right? So they are not seed grown plants. And so my buying order of seeds from these two is nothing but a scam?

The fruit that grows from your seeds will have seeds.
