A google image search finds pictures of banana seeds like this:
That last one looks under-ripe. I broke open an ornamental banana in a garden in Mexico, and it had unmistakable black seeds.
Actually, those little dots are just aborted ovules, that would not sprout if you planted them. That's because commercial bananas are triploid, thus sterile. Their diploid and tetraploid parents have big obvious seeds.
Thank you Melissa. I've just learned something. What does a real banana seed look like? Any pictures?
