Ole boy looks to be out of Dallas. Is he writing about trying to grow them in Dallas? I would agree they won't grow up there for sure.

There are a number of varieties that claim to handle low temps, into the 20's for some. You can even get them at various local Master Gardener Fruit tree sales.

Is that just advertising hype?

I got a Fantastic last fall that is "supposed" to handle low temps and still produce. It was only $10 bucks on sale so if don't do well no big deal. I am doing more for the novelty of it anyway. If produces that will just be a bonus.

Wolfie#2 Just a tip on a good nursery. Josephs nursery in Manvel/Pearland area. Can't remember the county Rd but you can catch it in Manvel or Pearland. It is between 288 & 35. I usually catch it from Manvel, in the middle of town and go north. They have just about any tropical you can think of. That is where I buy a lot of my trees. Supposedly they only stock tropicals that will do good in the SE TX area. Did not get my 'Cado from them as I was doing some research and ran across Fast Growing Trees and their research/advice seemed resonable so I bought from them. That said though, I could have bought a bigger tree from Josephs for the same $ but FGT just seemed right @ the time. Plus I was wanting Kiwi and they had them also, in a male / female package.

Wolfie#2 Thanks for the info folks. I have heard about the wet feet syndrome and is another reason I thought about delaying putting it in the ground. Now wakeupluis throws another monkey wrench into the equation. Gonna be like that mango I've been nursing for tha past couple years. Again, Thanks! Good to hear from folks growin them in Texas.

wakeupluis My .02... not worth much..LOL

Leave it in a large pot until the point that is forms real bark! Then it will be hardy. If you plant it before the bark forms then if we are having a freeze wrap the base with Christmas lights and cover with a sheets.
