Check also Yuzu tree.....as I read in several forum it should be very hardy..

It's the lacking of some nutrients (not azote, since this plant takes it from air) and, may be, high temperature....

They look healthy...probably, being almost desert plants, they don't suffer the dry environment

Thanks....as I know Mexicola is one (or the) of most cold-hardy cultivars....so, if it will survive with no damage at -7°C it could be a very good choice for place where Mandarin tree survive..

Did someone really test the cold-hardiness of Mexicola Avocado ?? Is it real what we read about ? I was also wondering when does it fruit (period) in temperate climate ? (Before Christmas ? or later? and are the fruit damaged by light frost ??) !!!

The last thing....i read it can take 15° and survive without damage....but if the temperature are higher, but last for a long period (For example 25° F each night for 1 or 2 weeks, with max temp of 40° F or less) does it withstand ??

Which are your experiences ??

Thanks

Blackberry are grow in warmer climate than other small fruits...On the Alps (up to 1500 m) i found raspberry, but not true blackberry....anyway, Rubus is a very big group, for sure there will be some species with black Berries for zone 4

May be you should chose the drier season (in Ecuador Jun-Agoust)....and water only the soil.
Plant as tomatos suffer if they receive too much water over the leaves...but almost al vegetables prefer don't like humid air.
