Default Plantains cold-hardiness?


I have acquired some plantains called "Pacific Plantain". Unfortunately it did not come with it's scientific name so I don't know which one it is. Anyway, I would like to know about growing Plantains in a climate about 30 degrees south of the equator (sub-tropics/warm temperate climate border area). It can get chilly in winter. Does anyone know how they would react in such a climate? It is too cold for them? I grow Cavendish and they are OK during winter (although they stop growing).

Any experience with Plantains outside the tropics?

Many thanks
