Fantastic Avocado?

Does anyone grow Fantastic Avocado variety? How is the flavor and how cold hardy has it been for you?
Its supposed to be one of the cold hardier types that can take brief dips into the mid teens F.
I'm assuming that, that is once its more mature and it doesnt stay cold for long.
I am in a 8b FL which just suppposedly got bumped up to a 9a. It has got to 14F here and generally can hit 20F in the winter once in awhile. It always bounces back up into the 50F or higher during the day, in those cold nights.
I am wondering if it should stay in a pot for a yr or two before planting in the ground. Its currently a 3 gal. size.
