Default Dwarf Namwah or Raja Puri in Container in Austin (zone 8B)?

I'm looking to grow a good-tasting banana in a container in Austin, TX.

What do you think - Raja Puri or Dwarf Namwah?

It sounds like the Raja may be more cold tolerant. I plan to cover, move, and/or heat the plant when the temp goes near freezing. I'm also not an experienced gardener and I've read that the Raja is hardy.

Does the Dwarf Namwah taste a lot better?

From what I know, the Raja is probably hardier that the Namwah. However, I'm just growing Raja Puri for the first time this year, thanks to a friend, and don't know a whole lot about it.

Musa 'Raja Puri' would be my choice.
