high altitude bananas?

Kia Ora Hawaiians,

I've recently come across a website suggesting Dwarf cavendish bananas are grown at up to 1300m elevation in Hawaii. Is this true? I would have thought that altitude would be too cold. If it is correct, does the fruit ripen up adequately?

Try Rajapuri. It tolerates wind better and sustained cool weather.
