|Brunswick fig after the freeze|
Hard to say, but so far, so good. Many of the terminal buds are frozen and dessicated, but lateral buds seem less affected.
Brunswick, so far, looks good. I don't see any chewing damage, either. On this or the other trees.
Champagne is a hybrid of Celeste, which is considered cold tolerant, and an unknown variety. Developed at Louisiana State University. Again the terminal buds look dessicated.
Similar situation for Atreano. Atreano is more well established for Pacific NW. But again, this tree grew rapidly and the growth was not hardened off before winter.
Carini is completely untested for Pacific NW, being a family heirloom variety from Pennsylvania / New Jersey. Those states get some cold. Growth for Carini was not as rank as Champagne and Atreano, so it may be better lignified. Looking OK, there are still lateral buds.
Smith, a Louisiana bayou heritage variety, is also untested in the NW. One site speculated Smith was brought to the US from Yugoslavian immigrants, centuries ago. So it may have more cold hardiness than one would guess. Also grew rapidly, maybe a little better lignified than the two in the former chicken yard (Champagne, Atgeano) . The twigs are an interesting light brown.
