We're in zone 9B as well, SF Bay Area and we put those little clear Christmas 
lights on the citrus and avocados this year and they weren't harmed at all by 
the frosts!  We have 20 citrus from the temperamental Variegated Pink Eureka 
to the tender Kaffir Lime (Magroot).

The year before we covered them, but had so many hard frosts in a row we lost 
almost all.
