We sometimes use an old Coleman camp heater to save our grapefruit from a hard freeze. I doubt that heat tape could save your pluot blossoms, but if you have nothing else it's worth a try. You might do better to cover the whole tree with old sheets or something. Best of luck to you.

Has anyone ever tried hanging heat tape in branches of trees to prevent freezing? This is the tape used to wrap pipes. I was thinking that it might raise the temps in a small tree enough to spare some fruit (pluot is in full bloom and we are expecting a freeze tonight).
Probably a wacky idea....
