                  The 20k was a killer, lol. Looking back I could run 6 miles while smoking a pk of cigarettes, now I'm smoke free and I don't want to run 6 feet, lol

                    Nothing like bidding on something that isn't for sale in the first place!

                    Oh, and by the way, good job Frank!

                      Looking good Frank!
                      Spring storms ripped most of my PT's leaves off, we had 80 mph wind blasts a few weeks ago.
                      Thank God they're both leaving out again.

                        Rob, Wow! That sounds like more than a spring storm. Glad they are coming back for you. If not, you know where to get more.

                          Frank we had a 73 mph wind gust here Saturday afternoon when the squall line went through. Made some of my upright growers into weepers.

                          Frank and Rob, based on the leaves and fruit, and comparison to other figs in your collections, does it seem to resemble any known fig or families of figs? What known variety is it closest to?

                            Sure wish my efforts to make contact with someone in the area worked out. I think it looks like it's dreaming of a home in California!

                              I have no idea, Steve. If I were to hazard a wild guess, I'd say the Col de Dame family. Rob, might have have a better idea.

                              Harvey, I'm pretty sure it will end up in California somehow.

                                Steve, unfortunately i never got to taste one, by the time i visited the tree (first week of october) most fruit had dropped or were drying on the branches.
                                it's vigor is unlike any other fig i grow, my PT's were twice the size of any other cultivar i have rooted this winter started at the same time, indoors.

                                  Geez Frank..between the vigor that Rob is talking about and your super long and warm growing season..your going to be drowning in PT wood before you know it. It sure is a good thing you have such good friends at Ourfigs (myself included, of course) who will help you out as recipients of said wood and ease the burden for the tedious task of getting the variety established about the US.
                                  Anywho, in other words, I'd love to be on your PT cuttings list as they become available.

                                    The 2 Ponte Tresa's are in the middle and last row on the right. All these cuttings were started in the same 2 weeks.

                                    The picture of the fruit is enough to stir the juices of any true blue fignut. I've promised future cutting to so many people, I'm going to have to have a forest of these trees to meet my obligations.
