  • Mary Magdalene’s and The Virgin Mary’s fig

    A friend brought back a cutting from Mary Magdalene’s and the Virgin Mary’s house in Ephesus and gave me some pieces root a couple of years ago. I picked the first fig from it today. Not much taste as we have had 5 straight days of rain, but it didn’t split and it looks luscious. Hopefully, we’ll get a dry spell and I will get a true taste test of Mary Magdalene’s and the Virgin Mary’s favorite fig!

          Interesting posting. I found this youtube that shows a great deal of the surrounding grounds...very nice video. I didn't see any fig trees in the video...you know I was looking for those!

                  Those look delicious, and what a story! I would be interested in some cuttings if you decide to sell any at some point.
