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.
Ice cream, Blue Java
Dwarf Cavandish
Acuminata Gros Michael
Dwarf Namwa
Apple Manzano
Dwarf Red
Rajapuri
Dwarf Maoli
Hua Moa
Double Mahoi
Maurelli

I live is southwest Missouri (6b) and I planted out some banana plants and dug them up for the winter, they did stop growing, I think I should have cut off the top and let it grow out again. One thing I did was lay them on the side which probably didn't help with the fact that they stoped growing, I am planning to have around 15 or so planted outside this year.
All that being said I think it would be possible to dig it up and it would keep growing, I'll be trying it this year again and hopefully have better luck!
I had one fruiting and also layed it sideways and it finished the fruit.
