The Q&A Archives: Avocado and Banana

Question: I have avocado & banana trees that have gotten brown leaves from the cold weather, should I throw them away & start again?

Answer: Both avocado and banana trees can be pruned back to remove frost damage. As long as they were healthy prior to the freeze, they should recover. Just prune back the damage and you should see new growth when the weather warms.
