    Not likely IB, all that healthy growth and no sign of FMV, plus the leaves look more like a Celeste of sorts. Unless his videos provide better confirmation of the variety..I would hold onto my money.
    Calvin, Wish list is to finish working on the new house, someday.
    Bored? Grab a rake, paint roller, or a cordless drill and come over!

        Definitely not. BI is common, Stanford a capri. I asked him about it last week and he claimed that a local college told him they were the same and those were the names of the variety.

          The leaves left on the branches would have dried the wood rapidly, all that work he did and not a single one will root. eBay...

            Unless the person identifying it was a fig specialist (which he would have stressed), that's just not the kind of information one would get from a local college.

            I also don't think it's BI. No red petioles, wrong leaves, wrong fruits. Just 'wrong'.
