Cold tolerant question
« on: January 10, 2021, 08:40:42 PM »
which one of these are the most and second tolerant to sub 35 degree temp?  Mango tree, guava tree and sugar apple tree?  I can only fit a few containers in my small garage, so just trying to prioritize.

Guava mango and you should try to find a atemoya which is more cold tolerant  then a sugar apple.

Middle of January still harvesting a few guavas here and there. January's low temperatures averaging  in the 40s

Mango is the most cold hardy by far. Most guava are fairly cold intolerant(Lemon being an exception) and sugar apples do not like the cold at all but if they have time to go dormant they will do better.  If your garage is enclosed and attached to the house then you shouldn't have a problem with any of them kept in containers in there. If you are still concerned then put a heat lamp and that should keep the nip off. The problem with all of them is less the cold and more the frost.

Would be best to show/tell where you are located (city location more important than USDA zone).

Yes, whereabouts are you located?
I fruit different guava species but could never fruit sugar apple or even keep a mango alive.
