  • At the end of the day...

    ...I have enjoyed some natural dried figs from my own trees, with apricot wine made by my young brother, and reading M.Pons figs book. That's the way we enjoy this fig hobby.

    That is an excellent combination maybe the only thing missing for those that enjoy them is a nice cigar.

    SO many relaxing ways to enjoy this hobby after a day in the sunshine pampering plants.

    Very nice! Is it common to grow or collect figs in Vietnam?

      Pete, thank you!
      I could say, collecting figs (ficus carica) is not popular yet in my country, this hobby was maybe just started in Vietnam about 6 years ago. I live in the North of Vietnam, and the rain season is not as much as in the South. So, the fig is growing well here. There is also no fig wasp here.
      We also have figs, but not ficus carica. They are ficus Racemosa, and Roxburgh fig. Honestly, these tastes are not good, and not sweet as ficus carica, we often use them to make salad foods, to eat with pork.
      So, I have tried to collect fig (ficus carica) varieties around the world, and on the way to expand my small fig collection here.

      Thank you CJ!
      Have you had apricot there? If yes, it is not difficult for you to make apricot wine 😄
      In my place, apricot is quite popular.

    All that’s missing is the mood candle.
