Winter care for fruit trees

We have young potted lime, grapefruit, and mulberry trees. What is the best way to care for these during freezing weather- cover and leave outside, or bring in the garage? We also have apple and Fig trees planted in the yard. Any suggestions for these? We are new to the state and need all the help we can get. Thank you so much for your time and help.

Mango corruption

We have been getting mangoes lately with some weird internal (beneath the skin) structure, appearing like teeth or ribs--white in color. Ideas?

Cypress Condition?

Hi there. This cypress tree was transported from my boyfriend's yard (in western NC mountains) to my yard (Piedmont - Concord NC) about 3 weeks ago.

I've been watering it daily (about 8 gallons or so of water), but just noticed the ends of some of the branches are turning light brown. The branches are not as green and lush as they were.

I'm not sure what to do or if I should be concerned. I don't claim to have a very "green" thumb, so any advice is much appreciated.

Pears rot

I have an old pear tree that for the past several years the fruit rots (turns brown) before the pear is ripe. It starts as a small round spot on the pear and spreads to cover the pear. What can I do?. Photos attached. Thanks Bill Stirewalt Mount Pleasant, NC
