  • Unk Lake Spur 2015

    In ground Unk Lake Spur, planted late spring 2015. It has grown well. It has one small figlet and is looking like it will put on more.

    Very nice looking tree. I have got to get mine in ground soon. I was in Eatonton a few week ago working at the High School. I even took my crew through Rock Eagle. Keep us posted on the fruit.

      Thank you. Wish I would have known. That's not very far from my house. I have a couple of extra trees from a local unknown that I would love to contribute one to you for your project. I met a guy from Ray City about a month or two ago that travels the country to take down water towers. Said he recently took one down from my namesake's hometown in Willacoochee.

        I knew someone from the forum lived there but couldn't remember who. I used to go through there a lot and still do ocasionally. Next week I'm headed to Moody Alabama. That's not far from Petals From the Past. I might try to stop by to see Dr. Arlie and Jason.

      I remember seeing the name before, can you elaborate on the U. Lake Spur please.

      And another great looking tree! !!

        Charlie, a member of f4f and Bountifulfigs, found this variety in Arkansas, at a home his son was looking to buy. He never saw any ripe figs and concluded that someone had been harvesting the figs. The homeowner said he bought the plant at a retail nursery and that the fig froze back to the ground every year. No one knows what color this fig is or hardly anything else. It has very attractive leaves. Charlie harvested a ton of cuttings and widely distributed them across the community. I believe that Charlie has posted that the mother tree was intentionally burned to the ground. Search Unk Lake Spur on f4f and you will find the story and the picture of the mother plant.

        I have a few extra trees and was planning to give some away on trivia games but I'm stalled at the moment.
