Cheri replied to me with:

<<< A?late frost (in?spring)?is when it freezes after the trees have  
bloomed and thus kills the buds which would have produced fruit at the  
end of the season.
An early frost (in fall) can damage already grown fruit that is just  
needing more time to ripen completely.
Hope that clears it up...learning the hard way in Washington state.

Thank you. That makes sense. It also makes clear why you might lose  
just part of the harvest and not all of it. I was thinking just of  
harvest time and wasn't thinking about the fact that "early" could  
actually at the start rather than the end of the season.

Like I said, I'm not a farmer. :-)
