Why is frost so damaging to fruit plants?



  1. 0 Votes

    Some plants cannot tolerate freezing temperatures because they are more tender than other plants. When water freezes inside the plant, it crystallizes and can tears apart the plant cells. Some plants that are hardier have a better barrier against frost, and thus their cells remain unharmed.

    Once the buds on the plant come out they are being destroyed by the frost. Not all of them will survive and then whatever your growing will will not be as full as it could have if not frozen.
