Seeded Bananas are now available ūüćĆ

Have you ever seen a seeded banana?

This wild banana is the ancestor of many of today's edible banana varieties.

The fruit and seeds are edible and viable. 

Bananas can reproduce asexually because they have underground rhizomes called mothers that clone themselves by sprouting daughters which are genetically identical.

This method of reproduction is much quicker than growing from seed, but its also the reason commercially grown bananas lack genetic diversity- which they need in order to not get wiped out by pests or disease.

As with any fruit grown from seed, when you plant a banana from seed, as soon as the flower is pollinated, a brand new variety is created through sexual reproduction.

This is similar to mammal offspring being genetically similar to both its parents but not an exact clone of one of them. This method of reproduction creates more long-term genetic diversity for the world’s banana population.
