Brenda,

Your area is too far north for bananas to be a fruiting plant. They will grow as a perennial dying to the ground in winter and resprouting the next spring if mulched well. The other fruits can be grow productively in your area. The following web sites offer more info than I can fit in this brief reply. They are excellent, detailed resources for growing fruit in Georgia.
