Joy Hi. Im sylvia from Arkansas z 7b

I have read post and learned alot over the years. Finally joined so i can learn more. I have grown banana plants for years as ornamntals. Now i want to grow them for the fruit. Any help is appreciated and welcome.
I have to bring my bananas in for the winter if i want to get fruit. So my big question is. Can i plant them in the ground and then in fall dig them and put them in pots and get fruit. Or should i just leave them potted? I want them in the ground because they grow bigger faster. And i tend to over baby them in pots. I have grown dwarf orinoco, mekong giant as well as ornamentals basjoo, ensete glaucum, siam ruby, zebrina, ensete maurelli In the ground for years now. Recently purchased.
