(Musa velutina) Lovely, small banana plants produce the most stunning, glowing, brilliant pink banana you will ever see. They are edible, but very seedy. Plants have large leaves that grow up to 24" long and add a wonderful tropical effect to your yard or patio. This species is relatively hardy, taking a few degrees of frost fairly well. Ripe fruit will start to split open when ready to eat. Showy and fun to grow! Can be hard to germinate, but is then easy to grow.

What are the pros? Pink banana

What are the cons? Hard to grow bananas

Review:

I haven’t grown these banana seeds yet but I have grown other bananas from seeds. you should all know banana seeds are hard to grow. The ones I’ve grown took many months to come up, And only a few sprouted. Some sources say it take a few months to a year to sprout. Your best chances is to plant a lot and hope for a few in about three months. I’ve always used the seed starter kit with a lid in full sun. I hope this helps and hope they keep these seed listed because they are very very hard to find.

What are the pros? Easy once germinated

What are the cons? 14 months to fruit

Review:

I haven't purchased these from Baker Creek but I offer some professional advice (I have worked in the greenhouse industry for 30 years). Place seeds in a thermos with 110?F water for 36 hours. Plant in high quality potting mix and keep soil temp at 90?F. A heat mat may help. They will grow as fast as corn. But Musa needs 14 months of tropical conditions to fruit.

What are the pros? Would be adorable

What are the cons? Months trying to germinate

Review:

Ive been germing these since febuary... still nothing. I started another set each month or so. Nothing. I used different soils, different pretreatments. On the upside, Baker Creek sent way more than the minimum seed count. So i can try again and again. But every other seed from baker creek has germinated so these may just be unachievable. Im going to try seeds from a papaya as well, because id really like a tropical plant like that, but i cant afford more seeds right now, and mexican papaya seeds are free in papayas. Its unfortunate though- papaya trees are way bigger, and i found the size of this plant to be very appealing. Oh well, maybe 1 will sprout some day. One day...

Review:

Was not sure if I would be able to get these to germinate as I am just starting out trying to start things from seeds and am winging it, but two out of three started for me. I stuck them in a cell along all the others seeds I was trying to sprout and didn't do anything to them. I did use my own mix of soil for my seedlings (half compost, half a combination of peat moss and coconut coir) and a handful of perlite. They soil stayed damp, but not soaked and I kept a dome on it the entire time so it was nice and humid in there. The first one that popped took about two weeks, the other was a few days. Hope this helps someone.
