  • Figit forward Takoma Violet available to all

    Available to all, but only one shall receive. Really enjoy the games and now it’s my turn. Multi answer format. A couple ID’s and a fig question that must be answered to my satisfaction. I may or may not note when a correct answer is posted. Will give clues as we go. If you already have Takoma Violet please play anyway thinking I can find something of interest even if might be dormant season cuttings. The Takoma Violet is a airlayer not ready as yet so will be shipped when ready. Must answer all correct in the same post. If you post multiple fig possibilities for a pic on a post the answer is invalid so you must list only correct answers no shotgun approach.

    Pic 1 name that fig
    Pic 2 name that fig(s) 1st clue they share part of their name. Just name that word they share in common.
    Question 1 Parfum De Cafards That is the 1st I ever placed on a want list a few years ago and it still remains on my list. Explain to me why I placed it there, or at least get in general vicinity

      Interest, but no ability right now...I have a glass of wine in me and I've never had tolerance. Thanks for more fun games though Phil.

          Clue pic #1 was an unknown that was named after a town. Sometimes you see it labeled as "unknown Town"

            This photo has nothing to do with this game (other than to get people's juices flowing). It is a Takoma Violet about 2 years old that I gave a friend. It's growing in the ground in North Central California. It's a very nice variety. Click image for larger version

                    Is the word they share "Strawberry"?

                      The word they share is a family name. I don't believe I have ever posted on them, so looking beyond my posts will be needed.

                          The question was basically a give me to anyone that knows French or can use a online translator. Some languages the most unsavory things come off the tongue and it sounds wonderful and beautiful. It's not a real fig at least I hope not. I thought of the most disgusting smell and to me that is the sickening sweet smell when crushing a Palmetto bug. Those dinosaur sized roaches Floridians love so much.

                                    RE: Bissiri #3. I received some cuttings from JazzBass some years ago. They are growing in the ground in Texas. I have not been around for the past two fig seasons to see the figs. There was a conversation in F4F about Mr Bissiri, and I asked about the cuttings I have. There was not any information about it at the time. I'm trying to find time to get to Texas in the next several weeks. I'm hoping some of the unknowns I left behind are ripening. If not, at least get some new leaf photos. Do you have any information about it?

                                      Nothing more than the threads I read on f4f on it mostly I think mostly by Ricci and Barry. I rooted them spring 2014 and I do have some fruit on them this year

                                    Me too, I really didn't have any idea where to even start. Especially since I didn't recognize the leaves.
