Default Re: growing bananas in northern/central north carolina?

If I were to grow bananas and the others listed in a coastal area of northern N. Carolina, would they still need protection?

Also again off-topic, sorry. Could you grow rhubarb as a perennial in N. Carolina? The reason I'd be growing the tropical fruits mentioned is because rhubarb won't grow in the southern part of the state and I like rhubarb.

Would you have to wrap the branches of the trees in something (tarp like you mentioned for example) if they're going to be in a greenhouse? Also could you show pictures as to what this should look like if possible?
I am not positive, but I think Rhubarb is a cool growing plant, I know here it wont do very well in our heat.

If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any Banana pudding! How can you have any Banana pudding if you don't eat yer meat?!
