[Market-farming] Cole crops and frost

We've got some fall cole crops.  It's been years since I've (succesfully) 
grown cole crops for fall harvest, and my memory's fuzzy about what 
temperatures mature plants can handle.  Does anyone know at what 
temperatures the heads for broccoli, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, and 
cabbage get damaged?  (My memory says it's something like 28, 32, 25, and 
20, but I don't want to trust it...)

(Strangeness: here in Missouri we STILL haven't had a good frost yet -- 
average first frost is October 15, but we've only had a couple light frosts 
that didn't have time to do any real damage.  Very peculiar indeed...)
