No protection at all except 2007 during the arctic blast when the baby mango tree and pineapples were covered in a makeshift mini greenhouse. All the banana leaves died.

I'm growing Banana, papaya, pineapple, mango, fig, citrus

The neighbor directly behind me has a full grown mango tree and avocado trees that get no protection.
