Default Cold damage Jan 2014

This damage is the result of the one nite that frost formed on the car windows. You need to wait a few weeks to see the true extent.

The cold burn I got is really just superficial. All the medium sized pstems are young enough to produce enough new leaves to support a fruit bunch. None of the pstems feel mushy. Unless we get a real freeze in the 20's that lasts for 4 hrs or more. The FHIA 1 with a bunch hanging may not make it -- we'll see.

I'm sure of that cause the tender stuff like tomatoes and bell peppers still look ok as well as the parsley and boxwood basil. I did bring in the Eugenia Candolleanas. They don't like any cold.

I've seen a lot of toasted bananas in Jacksonville so I don't feel so bad that I have probably lost 1/2 my P-stem on my DC in the ground and maybe more. (Corm will be fine; the ground didn't freeze but 25F and several more 30s nights can't have made her happy.) There were snow flurries across the river last night...snow? Isn't this FL?

10 day forecast has 50s night temps and warm weather ahead. 80F on Saturday? Be still my soul but I'll probably still be bundled up; I have low blood pressure so have a hard time getting warm once chilled. Pro to that is that this coldblooded woman can do without AC 90% of the time.

I can certainly see the damage from the cold temps on my plants. It makes me want to build a greenhouse.

How did the PK do?

Did mineral oil prevent or lessen the damage?

About half of the PK leaves stayed green. Surprising cause that one sticks out way above the others. And the tip of the flower just showed. I'll let it be, along with the Goldfinger, and there might be some fruit worth eating.
The main pstem of the Ae Ae that I pegged croaked altogether but the pups look fine.
Didn't spray cause the last minute forecast was above freezing and my thermometer didn't go below 38.

Is cold damage on bananas in south Florida common during winter? My banana plants appear mostly undamaged with most leaves green and the banana bunches also appear undamaged although my Goldfinger banana bunch has some small spots. The Goldfinger banana bunch is closest to the ground and the others are Namwa bananas far from the ground.


The coldest night here was Sunday January 19 with low temperatures in the 30s F and no wind. It is amazing that we had almost no wind most of that night.

Whoa. If i got plant like that i would be very worried. But then again, i would get plant like that just in the first days of november, before 3 cold months, not at the beginning of spring in florida.
I'm surprised on the good results of the Chini Champa. I wonder if it is in the same league of the dwarf orinoco regarding hardiness.

Good luck for your goldfinger bunch! As today, my plant looks miserable.

Dumb question, what's a cc?

Also it must have gotten lower than 38.

My acurite thermometer said 36 one night but I didn't get any yellowing on the plants out in the open. Orinoco, mini luki, and raja puri.

Hi,

also in Brazil I had in June 2011 frost damages at my bananas in my chácara, see also Bananas Raras The climate in the southern Brazilian state of São Paulo at my second residence is very like the climate of Florida. My report shows how my bananas did survive the frosts, there are also the frost damages described.

Best wishes
Joachim
