It shouldn't be, although they are all some Orinoco variants.

Assume good horticultural practices but no extra measures. Note I said "your mileage may vary" because (1) a map can say you are in zone 9 but your neck of the woods is zone 8, and (2) the listed zone of the cultivar might have been at the top or bottom of the range.

Does anyone know where to get Carolina King or Golden Rhinohorn? I am having trouble finding them anywhere except Ty-Ty, and I definitely don't want to order from there.

And that's just the general "Will Survive the low Temps of this Zone" rating. Blooming, Fruiting and Ripening are totally different things...unfortunately. This yr looks like a "zip" for me and my Mature Dwarf Namwa, FHIA23 and SHIA2340's with no flags yet...
Maybe next yr.....
Cheers,
Pat

I also see that Thousand Fingers is very cold hardy, according to this list, and I've seen other lists that say the same thing. Has anyone actually fruited one? It looks amazing, with that huge banana stalk hanging down, in all the pictures I've seen.

I haven't heard of Carolina Queen, but Ty-Ty nursery and Aaron's nursery have gotten very bad reputations with rare fruit growers. I have heard many reports of dead plants, abusive customer service, and misrepresentations. I'd rather learn from others' mistakes than repeat them, so that's why I said I didn't want to order from them.

I havent cold tested too many plants but super dwarf cavendish stays pretty green down to 30F for me and actually looks okay down to about 28F which is pretty unusual for a banana. Also I think musella is just a generally hardy plant (and also apparently pretty cold hardy too). Mine got chopped down to the ground as a small plant (not sure how it happened) and is now sprouting back from the roots and I found that pretty interesting since it was a weak and almost dieing plant.
Thai black is also suppose to be one of the more cold tolerant bananas but I wont be testing that until it makes some pups.

Good luck!
