I grew them in Zone 4/5. They only survive winter if laid on the ground 
and then covered with leaves or some other insulating material. Then I 
would lift them in spring. They did taste good, bore abundantly, and 
grew very vigorously, about 15 feet or more per season. I've since dug 
them up because I got tired of bending them to the ground; a lot of 
stem breakage occurred.
