Half alive

Standard

halfMandarinTree

Sometime between last month and today, my orange tree has half died. Half twiggy and dead and half luscious and alive.  If the recent frost is the culprit,  I would have expected to find dried-up leaves and fruit. Moreover, frost would not know to pick on fruit from just that one branch, would it? Or has this half-dead tree been masquerading as a wholly healthy one for months? Or have I been so absent minded not to have noticed.
