      Are you sure, Wills? I thought I sent you one last year.
      If not we'll just have to remedy that, won't we?

          I've lost two others in the past. This one looks strong and should have plenty of wood to share in the fall.

            Hi Frank. I was growing this variety, but lost it. My experience with it is a lot like what Dennis described. I also got it from the Russian sisters in Italy. I hope to get another one some day.

              I was so upset as the same thing happened to my Fracazzano Nero. I even tasted the figs that first year which were top tasting.
              My conclusion is that this variety is a super fast grower and producer but is not adapted to container gardening as it became root bound in just one season.
              This tree keeps on surprising me. After watching the whole tree drying out from top to bottom and while it still had some green( but drying )left,
              I snapped the 1 1/2 inch thick, 4ft long trunk close to the soil level in pot and sank the root ball in the ground at a wild and wet location at my river property just to see what happens. About two weeks ago, I was shocked to see new growth. I still don't expect that it will make it especially when planted in a super wet area on the property, that floods after the rain. Now I regret planting it in that location, but do not wish to touch it while actively growing.
              If it makes it this summer I will try to relocate it after it goes dormant perhaps. I will snap some photos if the tree is still alive especially after the great Texas flooding last week.
