    ancestor banana sounds like a cool band name

  4. Naomi Francis on July 15, 2021 at 2:20 am

    A smoothie comes to mind. Can the seeds be eaten? If so, a vitamix comes to mind.

  5. Sid 666 on July 15, 2021 at 2:20 am

    My dude in my hometown of Guwahati. Bruh. That’s a " Bheemkol". Full of seeds and causes crazy constipation 😂😂

  6. the dank doge on July 15, 2021 at 2:22 am

    I thought bananas don’t have seeds
    I’ve eating a whole banana every time I eat one now I’m a plant or a banana

  7. jeanferdi on July 15, 2021 at 2:22 am

    The seed of the banana you eat is infertile though. You won’t be able to grow any tree out of those seeds.

  8. Liberation Ahead on July 15, 2021 at 2:22 am

    "25% if it is seeds, which makes it difficult to eat".
    Yes, but only for someone that when he grew up was told you can’t eat seeds.
    You can and should eat seeds of fruits.

    We use it to make wine🍌🍷

  10. Miora on July 15, 2021 at 2:23 am

    i searched for this when i got weirded out by chewing something hard in a banana because I thought it was supposed to be all mushy. glad to know it’s not larvae egg or something

  11. James Haury on July 15, 2021 at 2:24 am

    So we might have to eat seeded bananas? I heard they were sweeter.

  12. Tilly Binkie on July 15, 2021 at 2:25 am

    Maybe mash the banana to a pulp to separate the seeds. Use the pulp with ice-cream or pancake fritters or banana loaf/cake.

  13. Enigma Nytemare on July 15, 2021 at 2:27 am

    Does this mean people a long time ago used to eat these seed bananas

    Good day WFG 👋

  16. Curtison Cuffy on July 15, 2021 at 2:32 am

    The original banana, fantastic

  17. Natasha on July 15, 2021 at 2:33 am

    If wild banans have this shape does that mean that it was men who made the modern bananas shaped like a penis? That’s pretty disturbing if so is the case…

  18. Sandy Sani on July 15, 2021 at 2:33 am

    I didn’t think this through it’s quite hard to talk now! Adorable ☺️!

  19. Bernadette Guab on July 15, 2021 at 2:35 am

    i remember in the Philippines ,I was little it was on the 80’s when our bananas that grows on our yard are seeded kinda annoyed eating them with all those seeds decided not to bother eating them.Would rather enjoy eating a seeded fruit called atis or sugar- apple fruit

  20. Dra Noel on July 15, 2021 at 2:35 am

    Did you grow them?

  21. Ankur Dey on July 15, 2021 at 2:36 am

    It’s not wild, definitely hybridised may be in a primitive way, these are quite old world bananas, and all those varieties example :’chapa’ bananas and few others all have seeds and quite sweet and bit wild flavour. They are mainly offered to gods, somehow considered holy than seedless bananas and eaten with seeds.

  22. Quack on July 15, 2021 at 2:37 am

    Yeah taste good very good

  23. Mysterious on July 15, 2021 at 2:47 am

    It’s Musa balbisiania. In Assamese it is called bhim Kool or bhim banana it’s delicious I love it.it is grown in Assam

  24. Anela Blanchard on July 15, 2021 at 2:48 am

    You can plant some banana tree now 🙈

  25. DJV on July 15, 2021 at 2:48 am

    So they are 25% poison

  26. Gracia Gorré on July 15, 2021 at 2:49 am

    💐that is God His Creation ,i am looking For Those seeds a Long time

  27. Eva May on July 15, 2021 at 2:49 am

    I just opened a store bought huge banana 🍌 and there were about a dozen hard little black spots on the outside not the inside. I wasnt familiar with banana seeds so I threw it out thinking they might be insect related… Freaks me out

  28. Monay Blanch on July 15, 2021 at 2:49 am

    Hello fellow New Yorker lol I love what your doing the videos the idea behind them all I just want to say I enjoy or content but I do have a weird question can you make a video on fruits you had that have long shelf life and fruits that can be Made into other things like jams or have multiple uses I feel like I’m throwing a lot at once but hey doesn’t hurt to ask

  29. mathuranatha das on July 15, 2021 at 2:50 am

    Good day all 🙂 , i really want to get some seeds from seeded edible bananas . If any of you know anyone who can post them to me in Australia I will happily pay for them 🙂

  30. snoop man on July 15, 2021 at 2:51 am

    definitely better for you than seedless bananas, kinda wierd that we even have any seedless fruit to be honest

  31. Anoop Karnik on July 15, 2021 at 2:53 am

    Hi Jared,
    Puzzle solved after 41 years! I was fresh graduate from Bombay university in 1979 was doing research for a project ; had to travel to Assam by train I bought these Bananas , I thought fruit has developed cancer! I had to throw all of them! Thank you
    I enjoyed all your episodes

  32. Ayecha Blackmore on July 15, 2021 at 2:54 am

    Fibers 😂😂 its a real banana bro not fake and made in a laboratory

  33. beifong on July 15, 2021 at 2:56 am

    In here, we steam or boil it before we eat it

  34. Umair Ahmad on July 15, 2021 at 2:58 am

    you should do a series where you propgate the seeds of all the fruit you taste

  35. DJ. Da Revenue The Mixtape Revenue 2020 on July 15, 2021 at 2:58 am

    U are wired & nasty… Save the banana from extinction

  36. Truly Infamous on July 15, 2021 at 3:02 am

    I think a good example of a fruit with lots of seed that isn’t awful to eat is watermelon. The seeds easily separate and you can spit them out easily. I’d be fine with seeded bananas if they either had a small number of kind of big seeds or a decent amount of seeds like this one as long as they would be easy to separate.

  37. Judy Mahabir on July 15, 2021 at 3:04 am

    It’s green. Lol. We call it Moko

  38. Ayecha Blackmore on July 15, 2021 at 3:05 am

    And you can eat the seeds 😤

  39. ブブタン on July 15, 2021 at 3:05 am

    I would have liked to see you toast the seeds and eat them. If they aren’t poisonous or something 😛

  40. nanocon on July 15, 2021 at 3:05 am

    so was this a japanese seeded bannana called musa basjoo

  41. Hy3na73 on July 15, 2021 at 3:06 am

    Cool. Very interesting. Makes me want to give them a crack.

  42. Gerónimo Agustín Guzman Pozzi on July 15, 2021 at 3:06 am

    Tremendo video pa como andas?? Do you want eat my banana?
    goodbye

  43. Pongq Mubarok on July 15, 2021 at 3:07 am

    In java this banana used for bird food,leaf for wrap food & taste is sweet,you can find the similiar taste without seeds "yellow kepok banana"

  44. innergy111 on July 15, 2021 at 3:07 am

    Probably should make a bananadrink with it, mush it with water and strain out the seeds.

  45. Parklawnz on July 15, 2021 at 3:07 am

    You can just swallow the seeds….

  46. Atlas Obscura on July 15, 2021 at 3:10 am

  47. Mucki Provokator on July 15, 2021 at 3:11 am

  48. arsenal fan FC on July 15, 2021 at 3:12 am

    That’s the ensete superbum banana, if the fruit is big then the flower is gigantic

  49. Los Santos City on July 15, 2021 at 3:13 am

    i remember as a kid we have a strange banana outside the house in the tropics, the seeds have a texture like the male scrotom and the size is roughly 5mm. My grandma dries it in the sun for days and use it as a bead for jewelry, She said even her grandma does. never seen that variety of banana anymore. last time i saw it was in 1998,

  50. roberto covarrubias on July 15, 2021 at 3:16 am
