  • Newbie get to taste the fruit of 11 months of work.

    I still consider my self a newbie because I've only been growing figs for 11 months. This past week I got 3 figs off my second leaf Black Greek tree (Black Greek was the first tree I bought on FigBid to beging my fig obsession). I know the tree is young and the fruit will get even better but the figs were so good. I have a lot of fruit on the trees and get excited everyday when I go out to see if anything has begun to swell. Particularly looking forward to Hative d' Argenteuil and Bordissot Negra Rimada to ripen as both trees are loaded. Nice to have a group that can relate to the excitement.

                  Wow! Congratulations and great pictures. Your trees look great! Very exciting. And great varieties. I’m about a year behind you. Working hard on acquiring a couple of varieties and growth...looking forward (hopefully) to figs next year! Congratulations again! What great rewards for your hard work and patience.
