Oh, I'm jealous! When I grow up, I'm going to have a sunroom full of tropical fruit trees, too! You should be able to ripen bananas in these conditions, but you may need to supplement light during the short days of winter, and use shades when thesun is most intense. Here are some suppliers of informational texts, bananas and other greenhouse fruit varieties:
