Default Your experiences with zone 9 hardy banana's

Ok I have been well and thoroughly bitten by the banana bug. While I want a grove (mind you not just a plant but a whole grove) of every banana known to man, I will settle for varieties that will thrive in zone 9 where I live. I would like to solicit you experiences with the true hardiness of different varieties. I already have several.
They are:
Ice Cream
Black Thia
Gran Nain
Dwarf Red ????(from wellspring)
2 unknowns - will get pics maybe yall can ID them for me
Also have Emsete Maurelii, Siam Ruby, and Siam Margarita on the way.

So please suggest away....
I would like to get the edables first then the ornamentals.
Thanks in advance,
