Default cold damage

The temp at my house got down to 34.5 degrees which caused considerable damage to banana leaves particularly those that were not in the shade. Should I remove the unsightly leaves when it warms or should I cut down the stalks. I have quite a few raja puri's with fruit and wonder whether the cold has stopped the ripening making them poor flavored.

If the leaf is brown or yellow you can cut it off, otherwise leave them. I don't know where you live (what zone) so further advice is difficult. Good luck!

34,5 f is not bad, your fruit won't have any damage
