Pink Banana, Velvet Banana Seeds (Musa velutina)

Price for Package of 3 seeds.

These lovely dwarf banana plants are typically used in the landscape for their ornamental appeal. The rootstock will survive outdoors to -5°C (23°F) with some winter protection. Musa velutina also makes a good houseplant. Once established they will bloom reliably. The exotic flowers (inflorescence) are pink to orange and are followed by bright, velvety, pink bananas.
 
However, more than an ornamental, the fruits are actually edible if you don't mind working around the seeds. They will peel themselves back when ripe. If you catch them at the right time, but you have only maybe a day or so to catch it when ripe, opened, and unspoiled, you'll notice the best flavour.
 
Bananas are herbaceous plants that have a “pseudostem” a cylinder of leaf-petiole sheaths, because of this they are sometimes mistaken for trees.
 
Sowing: Sow indoors at any time of year.
Sow seeds as soon as you are able. If you are not going to sow them, store them in their packaging in a cool, dark, dry place. (Do not refrigerate)
Soak seed for 3-4 days in warm water, which has been previously boiled. Change the water each day. (This process is important, as gets rid of germination inhibitors)
Fill either large cells or trays with perlite, vermiculite or sterilized compost. Stand the trays in water until the medium is completely moist
Sow the seeds 2.5cm (1”) deep. Spray the seeds with a little copper based fungicide
Bottom heat is helpful, place in a propagator if you have one or in a warm location out of direct sunlight. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep at a constant temperature of 20-25°C (68-77°F).
Check the seeds daily for germination. If mold or fungus appears, remove the seeds and wash them in warm water. Spray them with fungicide and re-sow in a fresh medium in a sterilized pot.
Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged. Patience is needed as germination is erratic and take from one to twelve months. Do not give up too soon!
 
Growing: 
When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots, taking care not to damage the root system. Grow on in well-lit conditions, and pot on, into rich, well drained soil, as required. Water the plant thoroughly and every 1 to 3 days thereafter depending on the season. Do not soak! Remember moist soil, not wet, not dry.
 
Position: 
The planting site should be chosen for protection from wind and cold weather, if possible, the south or southeast side of the house. Banana plants will grow in most soils, but to thrive, they should be planted in a rich, well-drained soil. Before planting, test your soil’s ability to drain properly. Dig a post-hole about 2 feet deep. Fill it with water. If it empties within two hours, the drainage should be ideal.
 
Cultivation: 
Their rapid growth rate makes bananas plants heavy feeders. During warm weather, apply a balanced fertilizer once a month. Spread the fertilizer evenly around the plant in a circle extending 4 feet from the trunk. Feed container banana plants on the same monthly schedule using about half the rate for outside plants.
 
Overwintering: 
Bring container grow plants indoors. Outdoor plants need protection, either wrap the trunk or cover with blanket if the banana plants are small and low temperatures are predicted. You can also dig up the roots, and store in a dark dry place inside until spring. (Foliage can be cut back to 6-8”) This is the best way for most.
Leaves are damaged at 0°C (32°F) but the plant will grow back from the root (corm)

The number of seeds in the package and grams?

Note that wherever the number of seeds is indicated in grams, there may be more or fewer seeds in the package because the seeds are not the same size and weight.

If indicated in grams, the number of seeds loses relevance and is only there to show the approximate number of seeds in the package.

For example "Price for pack of 50 (1g) seeds." so you are not buying the number of seeds but the weight.
