Breadfruit trees will not survive temperatures below 41 degrees Farenheit.

If it won't survive under 41 degrees, maybe try a green house either attached to the south side of the house, or with a big stone wall for the greenhouse's northwall, much like people did during the Victorian age.





Here's the article I got those pictures from: http://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2015/12/fruit-walls-urban-farming.html

You could also look into earth sheltered greenhouses. If you have enough winter sun, they might work well for you....

There's an amazing thread about a guy in Siberia who built an earthsheltered greehouse: https://permies.com/t/32195/Wonderful-AMAZING-News-Earth-Sheltered
