  • Peter's Honey & Black Jack Pics

    Here are a few pictures taken this morning after I was walking through my garden admiring and watering some of my trees. Looks like I will have Jujubes soon! I think I have 5 different varieties of Jujubes.

    Here is one of my 6 Black Jack fig trees getting larger.

    Here is one huge leaf off that same tree...Black Jack..

    Here is one of my Peter's Honey....one of the best tasting figs I grow.

    Here is the leaf of my Peter's Honey...

    Looking forward to a good year! Enjoy!

      Looks good. I am considering putting black jack on my wish list. I have cuttings for Peter's Honey in the fridge.....looking forward to eating figs from it.

        Jerry, what is the fridge about. I only had 4 cuttings just put directly into strained vermiculite, that removed small grain and powder. They are doing fine?

        Should I have put them in the fridge to make them even better? how long in fridge and then what? What do u keep them in until ready to move outside?

        Chaugg, I just haven't had time to start them in starting medium.

      Thanks for sharing those pics. Good Luck in the Season.
      I just received a Black Jack from Almost Eden and my Peters Honey is just now rebounding from the Polar Vortexes 2 winters ago.
      I'm always surprised that the dominant leaves of Peters Honey are always so distinct.
