This is an interesting thread to me - I never thought of doing this.
What do you use for potting soil?

Hello All,

Can anyone tell me the minimum size container (in gallons) that a
fruit
  
tree can be grown in, that is large enough that winter freeze/thaw 
cycles  
are not an issue with the root system?

I assume that once you hit a certain size container, it takes too
long 
to  
thaw, and winter protection is no longer necesarry.

Anyone know the minimum size?

Later,

My reply:

I have had a apple on M27 in a 3 gallon pot on my patio for 6 years
now.  
(I still have not figured where I am going to plant it - LOL!!!)  I
am in 4a/4b and it does just fine.
