I think all red bananas grown from seed (and any trees descending from them) will still produce seeds. The red bananas produced on the Musa velutina red banana tree are edible, but they contain a lot of seeds and not much edible flesh. As far as I know, all seedless bananas are naturally-occurring genetic mutants that have to be grown from pups taken from seedless banana trees.
