  • Intro

    I was wondering why the other place was lacking content. Now I found out where everyone went as I recognize many of the names here and have always valued their comments.

    I've been into the figs things for a few years now and growing them in a high tunnel here in RI, but have a few outside in large pots.
    Current inventory is VdB, RdB, CdDN, CdDB, White Triana, Sal's Gene, Italian Black, Marseille Black, Hardy Chicago, JH, Bryant Dark, and a few others ( thankfully they are labeled). I'' put up some photos from the greenhouse, as everyone loves pictures, right?

    Welcome, you will love it here. Nice list of figs.
    I was told there is to many Mikes on here so you may want to change your name :-)

            How has White Triana produced for you? Did you get it from figtrees.net?

            I was thinking of heading there this fall to pick up both White/Black Triana from Joe.

                      fitzski - the WT produce just a few figs last year and they were good, but not great. This year appears to be a different story as I have been fertilizing them all heavy with Jacks fertilizer and they have all responded very well. I got the WT in a trade actually.

                      Here is the WT as of this AM. Happy, healthy and loaded with figs.

                        Welcome RIMike. Good to see you here. May I ask if you were RIMike on the other forum
                        or did you go buy something else?

                                          Welcome, glad you joined. Greenhouses are the way to go for figs in the northeast, and your photos confirm it-nice looking crop on the WT. I look forward to your harvest report, that one variety has been on my radar for awhile.
