  • Unk Greek Mykonos 2021

    Here’s one of my favorites that I haven’t posted about since 2014 on figs4fun. It’s a top of the line Mt Etna type, but larger usually. Very productive. I’ve been picking them for a couple weeks.

      Years ago a local to Pittsburgh area brought back cuttings from Mykonos.

      Will you have any cutting of this one available this season?

        I won’t know until I start to put my trees away this fall.

      Mt Etna is a super group of figs. I like the slightly lighter colour flesh on some of the figs.

          It’s in a container. I won’t get a ripe in ground fig until probably mid to late September.

          blaze I picked my first in-ground Mt. Etna (Norella quickly followed by others) on Aug. 13. I'm surprised I'm so far ahead of you.

          Yep you are. My in ground etnas are Kellie, Makedonia Dark and Sangue dolce. Kellie ripened first. I am going to visit my Enola friend this weekend and check out those trees as well.

        If this Mykonos is as Etna as Vibo Valentia then i contest. So far Vibo Valentia has more the appearance of burgan unk than an Etna. Its young but already fruiting; Cant wait to try! A real beauty. Your pics of Mykonos look outstanding!

        I’d very much be interested in growing this whenever it is available. Get you on
        my Sourdough bandwagon in return 😁
        Im not growing chiapetta yet but will be on the lookout for your finds. Cheers!
