I live in: Australia
My nearest city or region is: Geelong
My hardiness zone is: Bizarre
After a lifetime :character-oldtimer: of eating the popular Cavendish Banana (just known as a banana in most Western countries) I have come across a banana seed. As the seeds are so rare I thought I would try to germinate it. Have any Forum members got any idea how to germinate it?

I used the advise on this page http://gardenofeaden.blogspot.co.uk/201 ... -seed.html which worked for me. Although not on a Cavendish!

Good luck, but I think there's a good chance the seed is not viable.
