        I will know more in a few weeks when the figs on mine ripen, I bought a small plant last summer and it's set quite a few figs this year.

          I’ve heard if you live on the east coast it’s not really worth growing. It’s late and because of thet mediocure at best here even in a greenhouse.
          I have no experience with it personally though.

              Great to know that it doesn't need the wasp.
              I am a little surprised that it is a late variety. Ponte Tresa-- the location is 45 N, quite a bit North of most of USA and doesnt receive a lot of heat units.

                ramv, the mother tree is growing by Lake Lugano which would give it a bit milder microenvironment than the latitude would imply. I'm still evaluating mine both in-ground and in a container. My experience is limited but in my location (MD zone 7a) I am pretty sure that ripening PT by September should be feasible when you grow it in a container. It is certainly not any later than varieties like Preto/BM, CdD etc and will likely be earlier than those.

                  Here is a photo from today, so you can see how far along my Ponte Tresa figs are. I am in a somewhat cooler part of CA, so they are not as far along as they might be in the Central Valley, or SoCal. This tree is in a 1/2 wine barrel, started from a cutting in early 2016. I also have one in ground that produced the ripe fig last Summer, shown in my previous post. I believe they will start ripening by late August.

                    I’m hoping to find one next year. My mother is Swiss-born, so I am looking for this one and the Norland. Lugano is a gorgeous town. Might need to visit again!
