Default Topocho enano from Canarias islands

Good evening,

I own a small Topocho enano from Canarias islands.
Topocho enano is a clone of dwarf orinoco (group ABB subgroup Bluggoe).
It is widely cultivated on Canarias islands.
One can read an interesting comparative paper between Topocho verde and Topocho enano (sorry it is in spanish).
There are some interesting pictures. Please see page 17 to 20 :

Yes Ante, Just a remark : Topocho enano is a clone of dwarf orinoco. You can get it from canarias web site as soon as they will begin to sell again (spring ?).
I got mine from them.

What are your temperature minima on the dalmatian coast ?

Phil

PS : I could send you a pup but mine doesn't have any; it is too small. I will put it into the ground this spring.

Thank You for offer Phil
Im in 9b zone here, we had no temps below 0 this winter here on our riviera but some parts of dalmatia went down to -6 C this year what gets record lows for some areas. In my place it isnt so about low temps but in wind protection.
