Default Re: Cavendish cold hardiness temperature

Watching my own bananas I do not think its the actual cold that kills them (besides the leaves). Its the water freezing and bursting in the stem. If you don't get the liquid out they start to rot and turn to mush. That being said I still have some holding on that were outside at 18F albeit they were wrapped up.
