Had a very bad freeze winter of 2007. Got down to 16 degrees. I was worried my tree might be a goner. All the leaves fell off but when the weather warmed in Feb. it began to leaf out. Completely recovered. Fertilize 3 times a year and water about once a week in summer (just let hose trickle for about 30 min.). Has never beared fruit yet so don't know how they taste.
