  • Nuestra Segniora del Carmen (NSDS)

    I was fortunate to win a bid for NSDS (Fruitnut) grafted. The plant came with 3 figs and didn’t grow an inch since June. I removed 2 figs thinking perhaps that it should help the growing process, but all for nothing. I checked on the roots and they are pretty healthy. So this made me less worried. One fig that was left surprisingly swelled and result is in the pictures. I can’t even describe amazing taste! By far the best fig I ever had.

    Very nice! If it’s ripened fruit, I would say it’s holding its own and will probably grow in time. 🤞🏼

    I have a grafted one also, by someone else though, and mine hasn’t grown very much either. It’s had me worried! I would airlayer it off, but it’s remained at 5 inches, so not much to work with. But I’m hoping mine will grow in time too. 😬 The fruit definitely looks worth it!

      It truly exceeded my expectations. Interesting fact that it didn’t grow much even in Southern California. Hmmm … Perhaps it makes me even less concerned now.

      I have two on their own roots and they both are very strong growers.
      Try to get one on its own roots eventually!

      Netstars I definitely prefer my fig trees on their own roots! I grabbed this one because it was listed for a little less, but may have been better just to wait. Cutting season will be coming soon though!

    Wow, it looks amazing, now the question is which other figs are you comparing it against? 😀

      I should probably be saying “in my humble opinion”. And add to that - it was my second highest $$$$ fig tree purchase.

    Congratulations on the start of fruiting of such a rarity! And a new taste in the "money box".

      I wouldn't worry about the growth since its probably busy making roots.

        Congrats! Looks great. Mine has been the slowest grower of all my varieties so far as well. Soooo slow. But I’ve been plucking off new figs, might just decide to leave one on now .

            Looks great, do you know what is the rootstock, I also won one from fruitnut ( I didnt expect that at all ) this season, and its now almost 7 feet tall.
