Check some of my old threads on mine. They fruit every year and I do keep them in ground. I just throw a plastic feed bag or something similar to keep them dry over our wet winter! Any AA types like VC hate being cold and damp! Last year I had 3 short cycle types fruit. VC, Patupi, and Iholena Tigua.
That’s the only 3 short cycle types i have had success with here in 8b. I’m a little over an hour south of Abnshrek!
