    It says that the common banana we eat is a mutated form of a banana tree that has no seeds.

    Bananas are propagated by side shoots when the banana bunch is harvested.

    Yes, it is true that the bananas we commonly eat and that are grown in vast quantities have no seeds. They are propagated from offshoots.
    Wild bananas do produce seeds, however, and it is possible to buy them in packets from some seed companies.
    Because the cultivated banana does not have any seeds it has been theorised by people who believe in Atlantis that this is evidence of the fruit having been developed there, seeing as it would have taken a long time and skill to produce the modern cultivar and its origins are said to be unknown.
