I planted the Conadria out in the yard and it is now on a rampage. I bent down the low branches and buried them, so it's grown a dozen new shoots from the branches. By 2012 I'll be pruning with a machete. It survived some 11 degree nights with no trouble, started some breba figs in march, got knocked back by a hard frost in April, but had only slight damage. The flavor is very mild or even bland, but the plant is very productive and I could see using it for preserves
The LSU purple fruited nicely in a 10 or 12 gallon pot and is about 3 feet tall. I checked the root ball the other day, and it is not root bound even after 3 years. The Conadria became root bound almost immediately.
My Brown Turkey, Celest, LSU Purple and Conadria all came through some 11 degree temps without damage (Although the LSU and Conadria spent their first winter in the garage)
The Conadria had minor damage from a late frost, the LSU purple had just a touch of damage, the Celeste and Brown Turkey were fine.
We have a couple Black Mission that I'm testing for frost resistance this year.
