  • Cleveland figs

    Last year, I planted several fig trees at my parents' yard in Cleveland. The trees did not grow well last year, because they were dominated by the pole beans. My parents only cover the trees with a thin layer of row cover over winter. The trees survived the winter and will out produce most of my trees this year. You just can't beat the Cleveland climate and the fertile soil. The trees grow 3 times as fast in their yard than in my yard. Many branches have more than 20 figs on them.

    Jake, your trees look really healthy. Do you have any idea what varieties they are? Keep it up man.
