Default growing bananas in northern/central north carolina?

A couple things to note (just for the sake of clarification)

They would be grown outdoors in the ground

Edible varieties with no seeds

I'm wondering if I can grow them in the central or northern parts of N. Carolina; the gardening zone would be 7b and north of Raleigh.

I've found varieties of bananas where the minimum required grow zone is 8a/8b.
However would it be possible to grow bananas that have this zone requirement (listed above) in 7b?

Would they need any protection? If so how would I go about doing this?
