The banana you eat does not have seeds.

PS: To be sure, plant one and see. ;) But it will smell awful. :lol:

@Poison
Believe it or not, i have banana trees in my yard.
They are still only 1 year old and are wrapped in straw and plastic for the winter, but otherwise they are doing fine.
Obviously, i don't keep them for the bananas, i keep them as decorative trees. But the guy who gave them to me said that they will produce bananas, although they will not have to grow big

WOW!! But I don't think someone planted a regular banana to produce them. :)

Now, my dad planted them while i was at the sea side, so i couldn't see them. My dad said he planted something that looked like a bulb, but he can't tell the difference between a fox and a cat so...

The group of seedless plants known as cryptogams do not produce seeds but reproduce using spores. This group of plants includes bacteria, funghi, algae, mosses and liverworts and ferns. bacteria the simplest form being a single cell and ferns the highest producing roots, stems, leaves, and possessing a vacular system, however none of these produce flowers or seeds so seperates them from seed plants, higher forms of plant life known as spermatophytes.

Well, first of all bacteria, fungi and algae are not plants.
And since the seed originated with gimnosperms, you are right, briophites and pterifophites reproduce without the use of a seed
