|Image 1. This is a secondary bud that has emerged (semi vertical green stem). There is a remnant of primary stem, it is the brown nub on the right.|

Above are some images of the plants a couple weeks after the freeze in 2007. These were in a field of Arapaho. The remnants of the primocane leaves are on most nodes, it is the brown nub on the right side of the node (Image 1). A few days after the freeze I was in this field and noted 99% blossom kill and most of the fruiting laterals tissue appeared dead (wilted). I did not look for secondary buds at that time. However, about 2 weeks later, secondary buds were emerging, and I could not find the dead primaries (Image 1).
