I grew 4 rows of Aquadulce Claudia the winter of 2012/13, sowing them in the last week of October - for at least 10 weeks of that winter they were under 18" of snow followed by a long cold spring. We had a wonderful crop, starting picking around the end of May.
Aquadulce Claudia are as tough as old boots. I've never given them any protection and never had a problem.
Another 4 rows growing happily out there now
