Yes, if not protected they'll freeze down to the ground. But they come back.

Really? That's cool...I've never tried avocados before. I did a mango tree once, but it died.

Sandra. Dean is in Austin so some varieties that are borderline and capable of being protected in Austin will need more protection up in your metroplex.

marasri, is right. Over the years I have not really protected them only mulched deeply. However, they can thrive during the warmer months and have proven to be hardy perennials at least here without protection.
