Default Comparison of hardiness of Helen's Hybrid with other edible bananas

I am growing Helen's Hybrid in zone 9b, and I already know its hardiness is
simillar to that of Basjoo and Sikkimensis. It can overwinter outside in the
ground completely without any winter protections either on the pseudostem
nor on the ground even though it gets sometime 24F in mid winter.

From your experience, can anybody tell me what EDIBLE banana can be
comparable with this banana? May be Cal. Gold? Tall Orinoco? Or what?
