Default Dwarf Cavendish Banana

I certainly have a winter question. We are getting a freeze Wednesday evening of 28 degrees with 33 the preceding nite. The weather channel keeps lowering the expected temperature. I have a dwarf Cavendish banana with bananas on the plant. What to do. Will someone give me advice since I know very little about bananas. Thank you, Carol

Thanks Abnshrek Nannerhead, I have so many tropical that I am dealing with now.
Are you saying that I need to dig this up or can I deal with it in the ground. I know that Dwarf Cavendish will go down to low temps. Could I just wrap the bananas in a cloth. Maybe I should dig up the baby that is attached to the mother who has the bananas. Just don't know what to do. Thanks so much in advance, Carol

I was just saying you could do the same thing while it is in the ground, just don't wrap it to tight where the banana's are.. :^)
