Default Will these fruit?

Hey all,

I am just curious about how I should approach these dwarf namwahs. Both have had one light frosting, and both just flowered. Each leaf has 1/4 leaf unharmed, and the two final leaves remaining. Would it be worth it to cut them down? Or, will they still produce ripe fruit? Thanks

Cut the brown parts off and wait and see. I haven't had great luck with frost damaged plants making very good bunches but ya never know.

They will not flower again if you cut them down. one and done flowering. best you can do is protect it with blankets from future frosts and hope the flowers don't freeze

Will the pups assist the mother plant with their leaves?

Not that I'm aware of, but removing pups also damages some of the mothers root system so I'd leave them be.
