Why do you need pollen? Our bananas flower and bear fruit without other plants or flowers, so am wondering what you plant to do with the basjoo pollen. Also, how long does it remain viable and how to ship to keep it viable? PJKFarm@gmail.com

Basjoo is a species banana so needs pollen for the fruit to swell and set seed. No pollen; no seed and no banana.

I learned something new. Did you ever get any fruit out of it?

I"m confuzed I thought the plant was a self pollinator.
The flower is usually full of ants or bees
When a single plant flowers small bananas form.

I have read this thread post #9 but still on the fence.
Basjoo seed


I have never had the fingers fill completely because of the short grow window I have.

I get fully developed fingers here, but they are full of diamond-hard seeds the size of a Volkswagen bug. Pretty much useless for anything edible, unless you take the time to pull them apart and make some 'nanner puddin' or something.
