  • Nordland (Marius N) 2015 Main

    This four year old big guy was moved from a 10 gal pot to in ground in May 2015.
    It produces the largest figs of any tree I own. Unfortunately my scales quit on me.
    Its much larger than a golf ball and a little smaller than a tennis ball. It is a very
    attractive fig both inside and out, although "Martin" would not agree. Ha

    My two grand kids and wife said it taste like sweet watermelon. Maybe, but I added
    a good ripe pear. To each his own. Anyway, my wife said and 8, one grandson
    said 10 and the other a 9. I had already given it a 9. Pretty dang good white fig.

    Looks delicious, I can't wait to try mine. Well, actually I can wait, and will be waiting..for a couple months. I am impressed by how much growth the tree is putting on this year compared to last. It might end up being a candidate to start an airlayer for step-over trials.
    Edit- Ooops! I just realized this said Nordland and not LdA, synonyms. I have LdA, not Nordland. A-n-y-w-a-y.
    Thanks for sharing Mike!

    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!

      That's a mouthful of a fig!
      Didn't know it was so large and without a cavity inside. It seems to be also evenly ripe! A good thing for a large fig.
      Will make a note to get one.
      Congrats!

        Hmm.. I googled this fig and a found photo over here:

        http://www.raintreenursery.com/NordlAnd_Fig.html

        They show an elongated fig that is different in shape and color from yours.
        Is that a wrong photo?

            Thanks for the link.
            Interesting, the Marius' fig and the one from Raintree appear to be totally different. I think it worth keeping MD next to the name to tell them apart, Nordland MD.
            Or maybe I am wrong here?

            How would LdA compare to this one?

              What is the significance of MD ?

              My two LdA from different sources should produce a good crop this third year
              so I can compare and will post.
