Yes, I have bananas every year, but last year's summer was even cool so many did not mature (think I had 6 bunches). Some are more reliable than others. My best so far is some unknown (mislabeled) variety that grows to 10-11' which I have given the name "Mystery Busy Bee banana" (I once posted a photo with the flower fully of busy bees....real creative). A few winters ago we had just 3-4 frosts and down to 28F and most bananas still had some green leaves by spring so that was much better than this winter!
