Default Re: Before & after freeze pics Jan 2018. What fared the best?

People here had coconut palms until 2010, and big mango trees, too. Just over a half hour south of here there are lots of big mangoes and coconuts, but here they are all pretty small. The only bigger mango I know of in the area was blown down by Matthew...

Now we are facing round 2. It's 71 now but supposed to get down to 32 tonight. Last time they said 31. (I think it got a bit colder than that, though.) It doesn't look good for those bananas to fill in but they are still green and the flower is still opening new bracts so I am covering them again tonight even though the mama plant is pretty much devoid of leaves...
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
