App said 36 here in SWFL but I think it was closer to 38. The wind was brutal.

38 bokeelia  that used to be a every year temp.my 30 foot+ rollinia did not care for that wind.Well I can see the fruit now!
Interesting I am just a mile or so north and didn't get a temp reading but the wind may have helped. I don't see signs of leaf damage defoliation on breadfruit will check again today.

Breadfruit that's pushing the zone.The only 40+ temp I seen in sw florida on wunder map was useppa island.I think to farm their you have to have at least 8 digits.Chempedaks and artocarpus lanceifolius look good so far, Quararibea cordata looks some bothered had alot of new growth,cacao new growth looks very good.Old soursop looks to loose 99% leaves.Red prawn look good.

Checked again today no leaf damage at all to the breadfruit.
