  • Cherry Cordial 2021- oh my!

    What a wonderful little fruit! Nice strong flavor with a little acid for me. Mild sweetness. An awesome fig that's definitely going to make the cut.

      I have 12 CHERRY CORDIALS IN 5 AND 10 GALLON POTS ,And will have cuttings in janurary . i think moving cuttings is BFF safe ,i think when BFF is every ware in Calif we should be able to move potted trees in the state without any more negative effect ???? VERY CLEAN ! bare root should be safe to send any where ,no fruit attached . i WILL GET YOU A CC NO CHARGE WHEN ITS SAFE .MESSAGE ME IF YOU WANT ?

        Fig Gazer bare roots in January would be great. Looking forward. Thx.

        I did a long walk today and no signs of BFF. If we can delay it till state takes action, it worth it and we did our best. But I totally agree it may be a matter of time if it is not already here under the radar.

          mesage me in janurary to remind me ! in regards to the spread of BFF have found infected trees at retail nurseries and big box stores ! do not know if they got infested at the store or brought in from larger wholsale nurseries ? the latter would be a powerfull vector to spread BFF THROUGHOUT CALIF . AND BEYOND !!! UNLESS A POWERFULL PESTICIDE IS FOUND AND DEPLOWED INTO THE SOIL BELOW AND AROUND INFESTED FIG TREES TO KILL THE BFF DURING THAT STAGE OF ITS LIFE CYCLE AND OR A EFFECTIVE STAREL FLY REALEASE PROGRAM IS MASSIVLY IMPLEMENTED . ITS ALREADY TO LATE AND WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO LIVE WITH BFF , MOST LICKLEY EVERY WHERE WITH WEATHER NO WORSE THAN FRANCE .

          I wonder if one of the BT variants mixed into the soil would help kill off the larva. It works against June/Japanese beetle larva in the ground.

          Cherry Cordial is a favorite for me. A good producer with cherry flavor and a acid bitter hint that mimics chocolate for a true cherry cordial taste. Perfect name. As with other spade leaf types it is difficult to keep healthy in our extreme dry heat. But got over 20 fruits so far in 15 gal pot third leaf tree. Some reached a medium size. Surely a winner for any climate.

                  FishingforFigs Was the fig caprified? Wondering what they are like without the wasp...? My yard receives plenty of sun & heat, but no wasp.

                    I'm fairly sure it was.

                  Not that you guys keep track in California but any idea if this would ripen in a shorter season?
