Most fruits grown in the US go dormant in late fall and require a minimum amount of cool weather before they can begin growing normally again in the spring. This cool weather requirement is measured in Chill Hours. Chill Hours are achieved when temperatures are between 32°F and 45°F.
The following plants require less Chill Hours to go through dormancy and are especially useful for gardeners in southern regions where other varieties will not grow and fruit satisfactorily. Treat this list as a guide and be sure to check with your local Extension agent or local growers to learn more about what you can grow in your region.
