Should I cover raspberry fruit before a hard freeze

Asked October 11, 2018, 5:31 PM EDT

I have several raspberry plants with lots of unripened fruit on them. If I cover the plants and fruit before a hard freeze, will the fruit continue to grow and ripen? If I don’t cover the fruit, will they die after the hard freeze?
