    Nice. Great pics. I can’t wait for mains to start ripening.

        The Exquisito is a graft from this season, rest are 2 to 3 yrs old

      A graft with great success wow 😳 . I made a few grafts that are already growing figs. Not sure if I’ll be able to ripen them.

        I would not keep all the figs in the first picture. You will get more growth this season instead

        Salem Dark is a winner if you're looking for a Mt Etna type. Nice growth on those trees.

          Exquisito may be the most productive fig I've ever encountered. It's pained me to pluck off so many figs this season so the tree would develop...

            Yes, I don't think I'll ever get the famed "3rd crop" , even though my season is long enough to ripen it, because my tree won't ever get put in the ground. The darned tree puts out so many figs that growth stalls as the figs all start growing; the roots aren't big enough to support the figs and keep growing at the same time. I think a full sized tree with roots in the ground would be able to ripen the initial main crop figs and still put on enough growth to enable it to set the fruit that would eventually form the 3rd crop in the late fall.

            I noticed this too. Even on my container tree earlier on the nodes were spaced super tightly with a fig on every node… The tree totally stalled… I had to pour all but one fig to get the tree to start growing again. Now it’s growing really well and vigourously… it seems the only way to get this tree to grow to full size before starting to enjoy the fruit
