harvesting seeds from Basjoo-how to ?

Bamatufa(7 - Trussville, AL)May 7, 2013

Anyone have experience harvesting seeds from Basjoo bananas? I have three flowering now with fruit and would like to harvest,pot to give away. Do you believe I could pot the banana itself or would be better to extract the seed from the fruit before planting? Or try both methods? I probably have 3dozen fruit/bananas.

You might get an answer over on bananas.org as this forum is not very active.

Hmmm you could try peeling the banana and planting it as an experiment. The banana flesh might help by giving the seedlings more nutrients.
