I'm about a 1/2 mile from the bay and that helps a little when it gets cold, but as far as bananas, the cold hardy ones are Orinoco, Raja Puri, CA Gold, Dwarf Cavendish, Ice Cream. I have all of those except CA Gold. I also have some Reds, but they have to stay in pots so they can be brought in for cold protection.

One key to getting the bananas thru winter is keeping them pretty dry--they will rot quick if wet and cold.
