  • Gloria's Red Barn UNK

    I was given a rooted cutting last Summer of the Red Barn UNK Gloria found and distributed last year. Last I recall it was suspected to be some type of Brown Turkey.

    Was anything further figured out and did anyone get ripe fruit?

    How did you cutting do Kelby? Did it look like a BT from the foliage?

      BTs are usually easy to root. A lot of us failed to root hers.

        Maybe we can talk Gloria into giving it another chance this year. If she can get them again.

          From what I remembered about Gloria Ukn Red barn, the property was being developed and everything was being removed including all 2 or 3 trees. So unless someone was successful in rooting the cuttings, I think the trees are gone.

              Last year I got at least 2 to root and they are in the Cravo wintering over. I checked everything 2 days ago and they seemed like they are doing well. The Cravo house only gets down to 30 F so I like to winter my plants there. The plants are still pretty small maybe 8-10 inches.

                Gloria sent out quite a lot of cuttings from the 2 (or 3?) trees she found on the property. To her eye, they were all the same kind.

                I'm sure some people had success. I have at least 2 of her Unk Red Barn 2 that have already broken bud and are leafing out in a sunny window. I think I have a 3rd and perhaps a 4th that are still dormant...
                Mine were too small and I didn't get figs last year...maybe this year.

                  Sharon, Jim thanks, that's very cool. Could you tell anything by the leaf patern?

                    All but one of my cuttings rooted and those trees are just beautiful. Kelby, I hope that tree gives figs this year.

                      Chris, I didn't root it, Shailesh gave me one of his extras last summer. I don't really recall the leaf shape but it wasn't anything unique. Hopefully I'll get fruit this year, it's pretty small.

                          Thanks Kelby and Shailesh. I love those pics. Looks like an awesome Celeste. Nice and fuzzy but who can tell! Most baby figs look alike. Love the baby praying mantis on the first pic also.

                            Anytime ChrisK. It is one of my favorites fig trees. I can't wait to taste the figs from it. I hope it will fruit this year.

                                I think I have 3 or 4 of this variety. I had luck rooting it, and with the knowledge that it didn't take off for a lot of people, I'll plant 2 of them in ground this year, to ensure they grow enough to share cuttings in the Fall.
