The fruit is known as having 'set' when the flowers/blossom has been fertilised and fruit are starting to develop.
Ive always assumed that the damage is done by ice crystals forming in and breaking down the plant cells, but to be honest I don't really know. Other problems resulting from cold weather can be a lack of pollinating insects being about.
Also some plants like tomatoes, chillies and squash just do not grow in low temperatures, and too long spent in the cold and damp means that roots begin to rot.
I woke to see quite a heavy snow shower a little while ago but now the sun is up and the sky is almost blue ... With any luck the worst could be over
