  • Fig Id from leaves, unripe fruit and rotten fruit?

    Hello, I know identifying thing from pictures is far from a science.... but can anybody help me with this one?
    I took a picture with leaves and unripe fruit and a picture of a fruit that fell to the ground.
    Any idea?
    Thanks!

    Couldn't tell you but I like what I see.

    I have nothing that resembles it but I wouldn't mind getting one like it if anyone can possibly ID this one.

      Kid Fig is right ,the looks, colors, size,etc are all of a winer!
      Also, not many varieties show those clusters of main crop fruit ripening around the top of a season's limb ...seen that on the BM, Preto and a few others only. The fruit on the ground do not seem rotten but slightly over ripe ,sweety and being chewn and drying simultaneously..
      and showing strong signs of having received wasp 'health care
      A fig to follow..

          Thanks for the reply Kid Fig JR Figology, here's another picture, I noticed the spades shaped leaves so that made me think of a BM like fig as well.

          I am rooting 3 cuttings and did 2 bud grafts as backup. When the rooting is done, I will give away 2 if they are all successful as I can only fit one more tree :-)

            @goodriendmike Now that you mention it, I'm starting to notice more dissimilarities.

            Like that wide spade -lke tri leaf. Any ideas?

            Do us (or me) a favor and when you get a chance to try it, create a new topic for it.

            In the meantime, hopefully you get multiple responses on what it might be.

            Kid Fig The figs coloration looks different then BM. No idea what it is. Seedling? peppercuts did you find the plant or buy it?

          goodfriendmike I found it in a friend's backyard right when I was helping them move out. They have no idea what type of figs it is since they didn't plant it, it was already there.

            I searched pics for Palermo Red and so far one difference I notice is PR seems to be a lighter green in its pre-ripe state.

            peppercuts fig is dark green.


            I could be wrong though (maybe it's just me wishing this is a seedling).

          Has a similar leaf shape to I 258.

          Fig ripens dark like the darkest Palermo Red.

          Alex I'd like to solve the puzzle; is it Genovese Nero?

          (Still no clue....)
