Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lucuma in zone 9b

About to plant out a Lucuma seedling, and I have a few questions:

Do I plant it in a mound like avocado or on level ground?

Does it need to be in a cold protected location or is it hardy to California zone 9b?

I am thinking about using Plant Growth Regulator Paclobutrazol (PBZ) to slow down the Wax Jambu that I have in my greenhouse, so it stops growing into the ceiling every year. From the studies I found online it looks like PBZ has other benefits like faster fruiting times, improved cold tolerance and higher yields. Does anyone have any personal experience using PBZ for zone pushing or reducing fruiting to times?

Here are some of the references I found:

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Eugenia myrcianthes - Uvaia do Campo

Got some seeds from Trade Winds Fruits for "Eugenia myrcianthes - Uvaia do Campo" which germinated in my greenhouse. I was unable to dig up any info on the internet about the plant. Does anyone that has grown it have any advice about the plant? Is it the same plant as eugenia pyriformis?
