I can’t say from personal experience but I would imagine since it’s from Africa it doesn’t react well to frost.

Cold hardy to 26 °F (-3.3 °C) probably because of South Africa is a bit cold.

Just FWIW . . .

My several small imbe seedlings made it down to 34ºF with no ill effect on them this past winter here in Tampa (zone 9b). They sat on my open, north-facing front porch all winter long.

I recall seeing on TFF that someone posted a while back that imbes can take the cold better –even while still small–  if they have developed their greyish bark and the stems are not still green.  My little imbes all have developed that greyish bark even though they are only about 10-inches tall.

They have only this past year started growing, having just 'sat there' for two years apparently sulkng after being potted up.  (I originally received them bare root.)

OK — HTH

It never ceases to amaze me at how hardy my imbe seedlings can be...While even a slight frost can toast atemoya seedlings and soursop seedlings, the imbe seedlings of mine just shrug off the cold and start to leaf out in early Spring.

Now I can't say the same for every imbe seedlings out there as your climate and their overall health may affect their hardiness, I can say that, at the least, mine can withstand the mid 20s (F) pretty well.

Teach a man to nurture plants, and he will be able to eat durian, soursop, mangosteen, papaya, rambutan, and guava fruits for life!
