Greetings I would like to know the end result of banana plant grown from a seed. Not seen any picture or video of a grown up plant with fruits. I have a doubt that seeded banana plant can't bear fruits. Please help me with all the info you have on this subject. Thank you Disha

Hi Disha; It is possible to grow banana plants from seed, but it's not the most desirable way to get the fruit you want. See this article:

The best way to propagate bananas for your garden or farm is to obtain offshoots, sprouts from the base of a parent plant that you know has the kind of fruit you want. Ask a neighbor or family member with mature banana plants to dig you an offshoot to plant in your garden. You have so many wonderfully delicious varieties of banana in India. I remember one I think called "rastali" that I loved.
