This is an excellent idea, I think that pictures like these would deserve a place in the banana wiki.

Marenmar, Yes, M. basjoo is most commonly associated with the Japanese word "basho" (but that word actually means little more than "Musa"). It is the yellow-flowered, cold-tolerant banana most popular in Europe. Did you check the size of your seeds? M. basjoo seeds are quite big! If they are about 8-100mm long and 4mm high, they almost certainly are M. basjoo!

Hi Matt,
I forgot to look at the size...mine aren't that big, 6mm or so, defenitely not 8-10. The white/creamy part of the seeds is very similar to the basjoo's. I haven't seen any seeds like these yet, that's why I thought mine were Basjoo. Do you know any type of seeds which look like ours?
