Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelli' seeds are not available. Some have tried to get mature plants to set seed, but I never heard what came of it.

What they're trying to say is that the red absynian banana, ensete maurellii, doesn't always come true from seeds. If they grow, some of them might be red, but most of them will be green.
Most of the ensete maurelii are produced from tissue culture. I just got in a liner of 72 yesterday, but fed ex crunched them really bad.
Sincerely,
Sandy
