i live in thailand, near jungle, and here everywhere wild banana growing, i cut off one and i was surprised when i open it, full of black seeds, but not such big size , abt 1 milimiter, now soaking it, and will try plant grain it after in my garden, lets se so far if it works.

Would have helped if you noted what type of Banana they are. People are probably buying normal tropical banana seeds now..... They won’t winter over and will die. Since you didn’t. I will mention the type of Banana you are sharing for those interested. Musa Basjoo (Japanese Fiber Banana). These Bananas are very cold hardy and will grow in zone 8. They do grow fast and look awesome with Fortunei palms. I find its better to buy them as pups or divisions vs seed.

That's not a banana seeds it's look like Date seeds.LOL
CaptainMyCaptain (2 months ago)
They are not date seeds. Date seeds are long and brown. Like a super skinny walnut - kind of. I grow date palms so I know the true date seeds very well.

dfguko (2 years ago)
what kind from banana is this? I never found such seeds in the bananas what I buying at my grocery store...
Mihai Zaim (2 years ago)
These are bananas that have two chromosomes, the bananas that you buy at the store have 3 chromosomes so they are infertile, and the female flowers don't need to be polaneted to produce fruit. Bananas have been cross polaneted since 500 years ago when the colonists discover them in Oceania, to produce new kinds of fruit. The banana that we buy at the store is called Cavendish and have been created 100 years ago in Central America, after a disease eliminated the Gros Michel banana.

+VietFiddle um....pink banana has seeds and it's one of the most delicious
VietFiddle (2 years ago)
+Samantha Shull No. It is not true. Good bananas fruits have no seeds at all. Bananas fruits that have seeds are bad bananas. Bananas fruits that have seeds that can germinate in your video are the worst of all bananas on earth, that nobody can eat their fruits.
Estelle Butler (2 years ago)
+Samantha Shull Ty, I will look , as soon , as I get some bananas.
Samantha Shull (2 years ago)
+Estelle Butler I believe, open the banana when you get to the bottom of it theirs a black seed in the very bottom of the banana.

VietFiddle (4 years ago)
Banana has many varieties, such as Cat has Lion, Cheetah, Tiger, and so on. Rodent has Rat, Rabbit, Chipmunk, and Kangaroo. Rats have bigger babies than Kangaroo. So, this so called "banana" has larger seeds than genuine banana.
meezergurl (2 years ago)
+VietFiddle There are videos on YouTube where people germinate banana seeds.
VietFiddle (2 years ago)
+meezergurl I know many varieties of bananas in Vietnam. The more seeds in a bananas fruit, the worse it tastes in comparison with other banana varieties. However, none of any bananas seeds can germinate. There are Grapes without seeds, and Orange without seeds in the US. How they can grow Seedless Grapes and Seedless Oranges? Do you know Ginger? Does Ginger have seeds? No. Ginger and Bananas grow the same way. Their bodies are under the ground. Their leaves, flowers, and fruits are higher above the ground, and they will surely withered and dried. However, their under ground bodies are still growing, like asparagus that never die. You can take a part of them to grow into your bananas in your land.
meezergurl (3 years ago)
+VietFiddle So these aren't bananas that you can grow fruit from? Our bananas here in Canada do not have seeds and I'm looking to grown my own banana plants.
pitpony2006 (4 years ago)
Also.....they are Banana seeds and baby trees growing in the video......The seeds are not from inside a Banana.......

BigbunnySSS (4 years ago)
After reading all the comments on your v-log, I half to say nothing about the v-log. But I think we would get along, with all the prayer plant on the back of your desk. I have mine under my air-conditioner and they bloom quite often. The summer is not there favorite time but they live through it. They get very showy during the winter with all there white little blooms. BEST OF LUCK FROM SOUTH FLORIDA...

VietFiddle (2 years ago)
+pitpony2006 Bananas seeds on eBay? Please, understand that all eBay bananas seeds cannot germinate, for the germination rate is no guaranteed. They need few years to germinate. In that period of time, you cannot ask your money back on eBay.

Dudin Sali (4 years ago)
Can you please send me some seeds, i cant find anywhere,,, PLEASEEEEEEE
CaptainMyCaptain (2 months ago)
Trust me. Growing them from seed is notoriously hard anyway. Look this up on EBay or whatever and you’ll get your banana. Musa Basjoo. (Japanese Fiber Banana) divisions or pups. It’s better to buy them this way vs seed. The seeds are scarce and rarely germinate as everyone grows them from the baby banana pups the mother plants produce. That’s what I do and I suggest you do if you want to grow a cold hardy banana.

 I grow banana trees by the dozen, you do not grow them from seed, they grow as suckers from another plant. Sometimes a large plant will have as many as a half dozen suckers, or babies as my grand daughter calls them.
Cambiumlayer 13 (8 months ago)
Good advice and tips. Thanks!. I soaked mine for 48 hours then I put them in seedling mix and now it's the wait and see game. I am soooo excited for the prospects. Growing plants is soooo fun!!!
Oscar Acosta (9 months ago)
Growing banana from seed is hit and miss. I've had seed that have germinated days after a good soak. I've also had seed germinate months after a good soak. Now I generally soak until germination. Basically, pop your seeds into a plastic bottle, cover them with water then put the bottle in the airing cupboard or somewhere warm and dark. Check every week.
Cambiumlayer 13 (11 months ago)
So if I grow from a seed what will happen?.
Harvey Nichols (4 years ago)
These are not banana plants, very untrue. This lady should be ashamed.

They are Musa ensete seeds.
CaptainMyCaptain (2 months ago)
Yes they are. They are Japanese Fiber Banana. All you idiots saying they are not banana seed don’t know fuck all about bananas or the fact there are MANY varieties of them. Fucking retard. These are Musa Basjoo seed. Of further note. Cultivation of Banana, IE new plants is typically done by propagating the pups. So people rarely ever see banana seeds. You come on here and comment like you know shit but don’t and I find it irritating. Google something before you open your hole. Idiot.....

Thanks to ThunderLightenBolt for asking the question that was first on my mind (why don't I ever see a banana seed after eating all kinds from the store. Small red bananas, Little yellow bananas, Plantain bananas and the normal Chiquita bananas. Here in USA we have USDA Nazi police to make sure we can't do what we want.

Incredible Two Part Episode on Fruit Tree's on CBC.. I learned more about Banana's in 60min than I ever knew ! Note: can only be viewed in Canada.. on cbc.ca/natureofthings/episode/the-fruit-hunters.html Part I is Great.. Part II is even more amazing ! Just started a couple seeds myself..will let you know how they do !
lorna lawson (5 years ago)
they certainly looked like banana seeds.... my 8 year old tree died this summer after sending out a stunning flower. I cut it down and when I was cutting it up to compost I found a number of what looked like pods and inside were these seeds covered in fibrous goo. I don't have a pawpaw tree in my garden either!! Off to plant my seeds....

where can i buy the banana seed ? i checked your web site but couldnt find them
Giovani Chiere (6 years ago)
Those are NOT banana seeds.
ThunderLightenBolt (6 years ago)
It seems the question (Number 1 )everyone is asking hasn't been answered..I wonder why . 1: Where is this seed located on the banana tree ? 2: Will this Banana tree produce Bananas and are they the kind that is in grocery stores ? 3: Or is this a Paw Paw Tree Seed which is shown and explained in this link below ? Local harvest.org/pawpaw-tree-seeds-C11374 4: People think this is the yellow banana in their grocery store..Let them know what it is before taking their money.
ThunderLightenBolt (6 years ago)
Can't we just cross them again if we lose them to disease? We can also grow them the hydroponic way to keep them as long as we wish.
Jazzinthecountry (6 years ago)
Nice to see what I am about to attempt. I have just ordered several varieties from the Banana Tree. A 18 inch Musa Basjoo planted outdoors in early May ended up 12 feet tall before I put it to bed for the winter a few weeks ago. Now I'm hooked on bananas.

CristinaMaeble1267 (6 years ago)
banana trees do have seeds, but you are correct not the ones you would buy at the store. the type of banana at the store was spacifically chosen and most likely bread to be a seedless variety. many wild banana plants do have seeds and dont need to send off shoots to reproduce.
CristinaMaeble1267 (6 years ago)
the seeds are in the banana
villagefem (6 years ago)

Yeah those are not the same Bananas you are thinking of Folks (like the ones at the grocery store) Banana trees bud off their parent (or mother tree) after the last bunches of bananas is grown and the mother dies. They do not have seeds.
jahad222 (6 years ago)
I was in Belize and saw many banana plantations. They put the fruit in bags to prevent bugs or whatever. Every plant/tree had the fruit covered w bags. I NEVER have seen a banana "seed", only baby plants from a mature plant or in a nursery. I know they grow in S. Texas and on the coast as well. They must be wrapped in the winter, the stalks, in winter to preserve them from freezing. Only in protected areas have I seen them fruit.
MrErlendsorli (6 years ago)
Those aren't banana-seeds. They're Ensete Ventricosum seeds. A cousin of the banana.

i thought the banana seeds where the little black spots seen inside the banana when you are eating them, right at the center of the fruit. Are those tiny specks seeds or are they not? Thanks.

Why don't bananas that we normally eat have seeds that big and if you plant seeds like that wont your bananas grow with big seeds inside and wont be eatable?
DarkHorseSource (6 years ago)
@grouchypus Yes and no. Edible bananas come from hybrid plants which are sterile (seedless), like a mule. The specks are where the seeds would have been. To grow an edible banana plant you must obviously take a cutting of some kind. The seeds in the video are shockingly large, most are 5-10mm.

BertieFox (7 years ago)
You morons saying 'why won't these produce REAL bananas should really be better educated and know that ALL real bananas are produced vegetatively, with NO seeds involved. Today's bananas are grown from a plant that was the result of a cross made generations ago. That's why bananas are potentially under threat as if a disease or a new pest attacks them, there is little breeders can do. Let's breed our own 'new' banana plants. Can't be impossible!
shamone10 (7 years ago)
@jij143 I think you're talking about the prayer plants, with the dots of dark brown on the leaves, behind the banana's.
