hmm...we were out in California this summer and my honey decided to bring
one back. I guess they are supposed to be hardy to 10 F? So I indulged her
and we've got this thing potted up and sitting outside for now. It's
getting cold and we are trying to decide if we should keep it in a garage
heated to 40 F for the winter or bring it in as a houseplant. Sounds like
we may never see any fruit from it unless we put it in a greenhouse.

Im assuming yr referring to feijoa. Ive got a 6-7 year old one, that
still has not flowered & seems to be quite bonsaied, tho not
intentionally. Not quite sure what it's growing cycle is, but Ive
never been able to coax much growth out of it during its outdoor
months, it wants to grow in the low light indoor months, & consequently
produces a lot of leggy growth that I usually end up pruning away.

I brought one here to oregon in 1991 and it has done nothing for me yet. It was covered with fruit in CA.
Not hot enough for long enough here I guess.
