hmm there is no zone 0.
I have seen notes suggesting the species be protected at Zone 9 or lower.
Most Crataegus (like Crataegus caucasica) are hardy to zone 5, Crataegus calpodendron is said to be hardy to zone 2.
The coldest parts of Greece might get down to zone 6, and it is possible that Crataegus schraderiana extends into regions that are zone 5.
The Eastern Mediterranean can have cold snaps way below the average annual minimum temperature (USDA Zone).
All the best,

Subject: [pfaf] New member with Crataegus schraderiana questions
Hi all. I just joined this group. I've been enjoying the PFAF website for quite a while.
The PFAF description of Crataegus schraderiana sounds very appealing, but says it's hardy to zone 0, which I'm assuming is a typo. How hardy is it? I'm in zone 5, New York State, USA.
I'm finding very little info about this species, which is surprising if the fruit really does taste even better than strawberries as described.
Thanks for any info you can provide.
