Do you know if the bananas of this banana tree are edible?

Probably a dwarf cavendish (cultivated hybrid), should be edible.  Most bananas are edible but the wild varieties are full of hard black seeds...

If its a cavendish it wont be hardy at all.

Dwarf is a relative term also, unless you have a tropical greenhouse with considerable headroom you will not get it big enough to fruit. If you like the look of bananas and don't mind not having fruit try musa basjoo or sikkimensis outdoors
