  • First post / Introduction

    Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Ethan and I grow a variety of fruits on a small plot just south of Seattle, WA in a zone 8b.
    I've been reading throughout the forum for quite some time but have never made a post and I really just want to say how much I appreciate all of you and enjoy reading all of the collaborative brain storming that goes on around here. Anyway, as far as the figs I grow out here in the PNW here is my ever growing collection even though I am completely out of room...

    Atreano
    Conadria
    Marseilles Black VS
    Desert King
    Florea
    Long D'Aout
    Neverella
    Niagara Black
    Ronde de Bordeaux
    Salem Dark
    Smith
    Takoma Violet
    Improved Celeste
    Italian 358
    Ischia Black
    Olympian
    Jurupa
    Grantham's Royal
    Violette de Bordeaux
    Zaffiro
    Hative D'Argenteuil (forgot to add in OP)

    I had my first fig a few years ago at a local nursery and thought it was the best thing I had ever eaten in my life and then was told right after "that wasnt even one of the better varieties"...I was then gifted a Desert King tree and ever since that day I have been in love with figs and on a constant journey to find and grow some of the quality varieties for my climate that are circulating around. Im about 4 years into growing fruits but only just got into figs over the last 2 years. I've got the fig bug and I've got it bad so besides this being a confession this is also my introduction!

    some of the other fruits that I grow (Persimmon, Pineapple Guava, Apricot, Nectarine, Peach, Plum, Pear, Apple, Loquat, Mulberry, Sea Buckthorn, Pawpaw and Citrus)

                                  Many do add a wish list in their signature, as I have done above. It's totally up to you!

                                  Thank you for the instructions 2AngelsMushrooms! All this time, I had my location and zone in 'location' in my profile. I didn't know why it wasn't showing up.

                                  Welcome to the group. Start clearing more land now, it will save time when all the new fig trees you just have to have start showing up. LOL
