    Hi everyone,

    I'm for canada on the south shore of Montreal. I'm in zone 5. I been growing figs for 5 years now. I have : Latarulla, Jean-Talon, brown turkey, black mission, grosse grise de Notre-Dame, Vincenzo, colosanti's Dark, stella, paradiso, panache, drumondii. I will be adding a couple more this spring. I grow in pots and store them in a cold room. Get them out usually in mid to late april and bring them back in mid november.

    Have a great one

    Vincent

            Welcome Vincent!
            I'm always trying to learn how others grow figs in cold climates with short growing seasons.

                              Hi Sarah

                              The panache did produced this year 2 fig. I will see what it will do this year. My tree is still young so the figs didn't have great flavour
