Jeff Earl had both of them but CCH was a mix-up and he gave it to his brother-in-law who had great success in his back yard with it (I visited him a few summers ago since he lived near me at the time). CCH is considerably taller than CG.

I don't think it's been grown where it's got down that cold. Lodi is about 25 miles from me and I don't think it's gotten below 20-22F in the past 30 years.

I got rid of my CCH when I did trenching for my solar system last fall. It was in a corner that was pretty neglected anyways.
