These are more hardy than I would have thought. Has any one had any luck growing Phoenix dactylifera? we are in zone 6 and I have seen temps as low as -10f.

They seem to be hardy in zones 8-10 but I'm not sure they will fruit in the coldest zone. They might fruit in a warm year. They are gendered trees so need to grow both males and females to get fruit. Yet another plant I would like to try growing!
