I check this forum often looking for species data but sometimes I feel that the information people share here is of little practical value because we only share the minimum temperature a species has seen but how about next day's maximum? Knowing only the minimum doesn't help much to know the real hardiness of a palm. Some of you live in climates where it may get, say, 26F at night but then will reach a balmy 60 next afternoon. Whereas others will see 26F at night and then just 35F or even 32F next day. We all know that these two hypothetical situations would affect the same tree in totally different ways. So how about everyone shares not just the minimum their palms have experienced but also next day's maximum? That'd give us the complete picture.

I'll start by saying that my mango, avocado, dragon fruit and banana survived through this January. Very little frost damage, most leaves remained green. All are young plants.
(My date palms also survived but they can handle much colder temperatures, so that was expected)

Bananas still green? All the bananas I see around are totally burnt

This must be some very mild microclimate, since this winter damages on tropical fruiting plants have been recorded all over southern Peloponnese and the islands. Mango variety can be a crucial factor for the survival of a plant. My two plants of Keitt suffered a serious damage, despite they had been protected during the January snow storm. On the other hand another plant of Osteen variety has remained largely unaffected.

@ego Yep banana has some brown leaves but not substancial damage. New ones popping out.

@Phoenikakias I do believe that Dikastika has a good microclimate (though I don't have enough weather data to prove it). The low temperatures are generally good, however the extreme wind keeps the high temperatures always down. My mango had the label "Gomera 3". When I asked in a mango growing group, noone knew this variety.

Since I'm very interested in mango growing, did you just protect them with a blanket or did you also use a heat source? And how low did it get in your place?

And... of course I know this dog! He's adorable! There's another one (Μπουμπού) that's kind of an asshole because she bites. But this one always comes inside out house to eat
