Can Apples handle frosts and freezes?

bart1(6/7 Northern VA)October 12, 2012

I have a couple late ripening apples that are in their first year of production (Pink Landy and Fuji) and I was wondering if I need to panic if a frost or freeze is coming.

If a freeze is predicted, do you harvest all your apples like you would your tomatoes or can these guys handle the cold?

Thanks!

You don't have to worry about first frosts as a general rule because temps have to drop into low '20's to damage varieties like Fuji and Pink Lady. I expect my late varieties to be harvest well after first frost.
