They are easy as long as they don't dry out for long periods.

I have transplanted them in these pots. Once winter has passed, I will put them in-ground. How big do they get & when do u think they'll bear fruit? Thanks

If they are cutting grown they usually try to fruit right away and fruit will hold in the first year without dropping. Can be kept at a small size easily by treating it like a hedge. Cut back fairly hard after fruiting once it has reached mature size. They grow vigorously,  will likely put on 2 feet in the first year. Because the fruit on new growth they espalier well, which makes bird protection and picking easier.
