  • New for me!

    I used to always bury my figs - the old school way. I built my greenhouse and wintered them in there instead this winter. Now I'm getting breba, which never happened before. This is one, picked a bit early, since I'm headed on vacation. But this is exciting stuff - especially since I'm in PA. Thanks for looking.

        Tony, Is that from the plant you got from me? If so, great job!

            Yep...this is one from you Art. The one you had labeled as "McGill". You thought it was a Conadria. Looks similar to pics on Conadria in all ways. That tree lives in the greenhouse in a plastic olive barrel. It has gotten very large - very quickly. Between breba and second crop it probably has well over 100 figs on it. Not bad for a young tree. Thanks!

                See Mike. ... another one on your list. ... gets bigger every day! !!

                Very nice Ajv73 congrats. I accidentally knocked off my only breba fig this year.

                Looks great, even pulling it a bit early, I'm sure it's delicious!

                  Mike, Remind me in the fall. I will send you cuttings. It's an easy rooter.

                    My hands are normal size...I think. I'll be trimming this guy in the fall so remind me too. This is a nice fig. Seems to love high temps and has a nice flavor. And for me, it is very prolific with tons of breba. Way ahead of all the other figs I have.

                    I haven't sold figs yet. It's fun giving them away. I gave away about 10 this last week to friends. But I potted 50+ rooted cuttings yesterday so who knows. My kids want to sell them on craigslist. We'll see. I know I won't have room for them, except for a few.
