I am in Quebec, Canada, Zone 4-5. I grow the fig tree Desert King in a pot. I put in a garage during the dormant period, and plan to put outdoors in the summer. What is the coldest temperature the Desert King can tolerate during the dormant period. Thank you so much!

A mature Desert King in the ground can withstand 15 degrees F in the winter. But in a container, the roots are more vulnerable and it would freeze that low. You can put it back outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.
