Default Help! First time banana owner and winterizing

Hi all! I have a 1st year ice cream Banana and a dwarf Cavedish in its 2nd year. I live in zone 8a. I'm so confused on the best way to winterize them to get *fruit* .I keep reading and reading but mostly find info about keeping them alive. They are in the ground right now.

Can someone give me a guaranteed way of winterizing to get fruit eventually? It can get into the teens here sometimes but we have long and hot summers about 7 to 8 months out of the year. Please help and thank you!

Maybe I shouldn't have used the word *guaranteed*. I mean the best way to make it more likely. Thank you.

think somebody did. do what I do spend a lot of time here. take them out of the ground, probably your best bet. pot them and keep them warm.

Neither of those plants can survive a winter in the ground in zone 9a, let alone 8a.
