Musa balbisiana Black - Available in packets of 10, 20 or 50 seeds.

Fresh 2023 seed

This variety has much darker ornamental stems when mature and with its dark green leaves plus fast growth rate it makes an excellent ornamental from seed. It produces large fruits but these are full of seeds so inedible. Quite a tall plant to 18ft but can be cut back to over winter under glass. Quite a tough banana possibly almost as hardy at the root level as Musa sikkimensis if the root crown is protected but wait 2 or 3 years until the plant is a good size before trying this.
