Tropical Fruit Discussion / Loquat cold tolerance
« on: January 23, 2023, 11:58:44 PM »
There is a huge atleast 13 year old loquat tree near my house outside, it has no protection, doesnt get watered by anybody only rain, no fertilizer.

So i was wondering at what temperature it doesnt fruit, cuz all those years it has been fruiting except maybe 1 or 2 very cold years and i wanted to know what temperature makes it not fruit so i can have a comparison for other fruit trees i want to plant and know the lowest my area goes.

I live in north greece, north blocked by a mountain, south blocked by a mountain, 9a.

Thanks in advance!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is my climate 9a? Info below
« on: January 04, 2023, 08:11:37 AM »
I am from north greece, i live between 2 mountains. 1 mountain blocks the warm sea air and the other the cold north air, i have data froma a place 10km away from me (Which takes the north air because it isnt blocked from the mountain)

January is the coldest month averaging 9c highs and 2c lows
The average day in december which is our least sun month has 9 hours of sunlight and the sky is clear in average 12 hours every day of december.
February is the month with the most humidity and has 73%
August is our hottest month and has average highs 33c and average lows of 21c
This december was really hot we had days of 20c highs and the lowest it got was -1 to -2 for 10 hours in total in the whole december

I get my info from this site , anybody can check it.

Any help appreciated, i want to know if my zone is 9a, according to maps it is but like temperature isnt the only thing that plays a role as far as i know.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Meyer lemon

Can meyer lemon survive nights of -5 to -7c if it is planted infront of a south facing wall and a huge black container

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cold hardy avocado, banana and mango
« on: December 02, 2022, 01:30:12 PM »
I am looking to plant some things and from what i found i can only plant avocados from those 3, the mexicola avocado which is resistant up to 18f. I wanted to ask if there is any cold tolerant edible banana or mango that survives down to -7c.

Some cold hardy mango variations i know are gomera 1-2-3 and a cold banana is musa basjoo although it's not edible🤷🏾

I am mainly looking for lemon or lime variations but anything is appreciated. I am looking into meyer lemon which i think i can withstand if i push the temperature up 2c through sun facing wall and black container with water

I live in north greece. Like right outside my house there is a mountain starting that is around 2000m so i have north blocked but i also have the south blocked from a shorter mountain. I want to enrich my backyard with more fruits, i currently have figs, pomegranates and persimmons and i recently just planted prickly pears (4 random varieties found on the wild) and passiflora edulis which might not end up well. Near me i have seen loquats, kiwi and blue crown passion fruit grown without protection so i am wondering what subtropical fruits i can grow. I will definitely plant feijoa and i want to try mexicola avocado which is supposed to survive as down as 15f. I get some low temps in January that go down to -6c at night but our days are pretty warm, up to 8c. I can plant trees on a south facing wall and i have a huge black container that was used to make wine to use as a heater using water. Any help appreciated!

Edit: forgot to mention, this summer was extremely wet especially june and july while the fall was almost rainless atleast 1 month and a half with no rain. Today our max was like 15c on my area.
