  • Hollier

    I have 2 Hollier plants. I can't recall whether I got both cuttings from the same member, or from 2 different members. They are both in their first year and are producing some figs.

    However, I noticed today that on one plant the figs have this white ostiole, which the figs on the other plant don't have.

    Is this characteristic for Hollier?

    That's very interesting. It looks like it's splitting and the flower is being exposed in my opinion. I have Hollier as of this year but no figs.

      arachyd, that's unfortunate..they are still tiny. The size of a pea, Not sure how it will look when it gets bigger. And they start splitting.

      Guess time will tell.

      Unless you're intention is to caprify the fig it probably won't affect it at all. I've seen much worse where the fig has a huge, flowery prolapse so not much is left to be the delicious interior pulp.

      Nah, no caprifying going on here. It just looked different to me. If I didn't have another Hollier that was fruiting, I wouldn't have thought anything of it at this stage.

      Rudypayraise , will do that.

      You should label this particular Hollier; maybe just maybe it's taking on new characteristics and becoming a new Hollier type (a synonym).

      Or maybe I'm just loco...

        And be greedy and sparingly share it, because just as the name suggest - many won't be worthy.

        And when they ask why - tell them cuz it's Hollier Than Thou

        @Nick Constanza , good questio. To me they look different. Not so much the shape, but the one in ground is more glossy. The other ones leaves look more velvety. Although I suspect it also has MV.

        First one is the fig with the inside poking out.

        Second is the other, inground, Hollier.

        Also worth noting, I put the "normal" Hollier last week inground. So it can't be acounted to that difference.

      I had a Genovese Nero af fruit prolapse last year and when ripe it was still very good, if strange looking.

        I've never paid attention to it. But I wasn't growing figseither, just consuming them.

      Figs are weird, sometimes they prolapse like that.

        Figs are definitely weird! I checked other plants, and this is the only one who did this. At first I thought maybe it's something like the peculiar red VDB ostiole.
