Growing Orange Tree Outdoors in Z5?

10 years ago

About 8 years ago I planted a seed from an orange in a pot. It germinated and grew into a small indoor plant.

It has grown well and is now 9' feet tall. It resembles a ficus, but with thorns. I've been putting it outdoors in the warmer weather, but now because of it's size, I want to find it a new home, or plant it in my yard if possible.

I'm not trying to get it to grow fruit, but my worries are that the cold weather in the Chicago area will kill it if it is planted outdoors. Am I right?
