Can you grow bananas from seed?

I would like to try if it is possible.

You cant actually plant a seed and grow single bananas from it. Bananas do not have seeds, however bananas grow on tree's and if you live in the right area and climate to raise a banana tree, you can grow a banana tree and pick the banana's from there and grow them that way.

The varieties of bananas you buy in the grocery store are seedless, so it is not possible to grow them from seed. Banana growers produce new plants without seeds, by propagating offshoots. There are wild bananas whose fruits contain many large seeds. With these seeds, you can grow bananas.

it is not a realistic endeavor. A banana tree can not grow fast enough to bear its fruit for a consumer. If you want to have a banana tree, you should consider buying one.

Yes. Bananas have many, very small seeds in the fruit. You can start your seeds in a fluffy seed soil mix and water regularly. You can see seeds emerge in just a few weeks. However, research your cold hardiness zone to ensure the plant's success.
