Default Stem Cutting

Say you have two bananas both 10' tall and equally healthy, same type etc etc... Winter comes along and they're killed to about 5 feet of trunk. If you cut one to the ground and the other to the the greenwood, would the taller one have the better chance of fruiting, or would they both fruit no matter what size, once they reached the designated no. of leaves? Or would it mean that cutting to the greenwood vs the stem is like getting a year's head start on the ground cut?
Also are there any specific types of bananas that are best suited to this?
I'm sorry if im not specific enough, but this is kinda hard to put into words.

Oops! the title meant to say "Stem Cutting"
