  • What is this fig?

    I realize there is little to go one but what are your guesses as what this one MAY be?

    I received it as a heirloom Italian fig. It was named Italian Strawberry. It is vigorous but non productive. I have been overwatering and that MAY have contributed to the centre split during high winds.

    Here are six pictures.

        6 - 8 hours sun, no overhead canopy.

        Pine straw and leaves are my mulch. The whole yard looks like that. Anywhere from three to six inches deep.

        Those leaves are 12" long.

            TJ, Jose263, from Biloxi tested it last fall with a handheld tester and it read 7.0. However I probably need to test again now that I am irrigating with well water. I think the well is about 6.0. I would not think that is out of the range for production though. I would think that there would be some figs and it is not isolated to this fig. Some of the potted figs under the same irrigation schedule had many figs. You can ask my squirrels if you need verification. Puzzling!

            Bobby can you guess as to what fig or family of figs the leaves belong to?
