If you could grow just one edible banana in Zone 8a, what would it be? Please consider the mature size since the plant will need to be dug each fall, how well the plant stores bare root, the fruiting cycle of the banana, the number of days it takes the fruit to ripen, etc. Zone 7/8 gardeners, what banana have you had the most success with? Have you gotten edible fruit? I'd like to hear your stories!

Just trying to find the perfect banana for my zone. Maybe it could turn out to be V. cohol? Time will tell.
