  • Am I Evil?

    I promised a few of you airlayers and I went around tagging trees but when I went to put on the a/l I found all of my branch tips had fruit. Many of these varieties I've never tried. So I'm going to delay the a/l until after they ripen. Sorry.

    You need to frame it differently. In reality, it's too hot to ship mid-summer. So, you're kindly going to grow the tree out a bit so that you can ship a bigger tree under more favorable weather conditions. Plus, you're going to taste the fruit so that you can provide a detailed report about its flavor profile.

    Definately evil. You should be sending those fruit laden branches to me!

    But seriously, I don't blame you.

      Can't you put on the airlayer and just leave it on the plant until after harvesting the fruit? 4 of my five current airlayers have figs on the end of the growing branch and I expect them to produce! I would not take off the airlayer and expect the figs to do well though, at least not at the expense of healthy growth.

            Recently I ate a Palermo Red breba without sharing, because, true story, I thought it wouldn't taste very good, thought I had picked it too early. Or maybe I had been working outside too long and the sun had got to me. It was really good, like a juicy red lollipop. Shortly thereafter, I explained to the family. I was not believed.

                        If there was room for the soil without burying the figs I'd do that. I've owed Wills these things for 2 or 3 years now.

                          I picked some ripe figs and brought them in for my wife, then she reminded me she was on a low carb diet, so I had to eat them. I think that makes me evil.

                            Only if you ate them with great enjoyment right in front of her. There's a Coldstone next to our local gym, and a lot of people will buy ice cream and eat it right outside in front of people slaving away on a treadmill.
