Default Newbie, seeks info/plants of dwarf/edible varieties

I'm in CT zone 6, and would like to find a good, really dwarf edible banana plant. I was considering musa pink velutina, however, while edible, they're packed with large seeds that can break a tooth if you're not careful. Can a dwarf variety be intentionally underpotted and still be somewhat happy and bear fruit? I've heard that even dwarf plants can be overwhelming, and in colder zones like mine are an exercise in futility without a greenhouse?

Any insights or suggestions? I don't have bananas, but I do have some great species begonias, hippeastrums and aroids available to swap. Feel free to contact me!
