ID:	35037 This tiger came from a local nursery. It is in a Classic 2000 pot. It is root bound and as soon as the fig ripens or falls off the plant will go into a GL 6900 or GL 10,000 pot. Once repotted it should perk up before going dormant usually late November here but sometimes mid to late January. Last year we had a mild winter until February.

    I hope this tiger fig turns out as good as some others on this forum.

    Good Luck with your Panache fig tree...
    When I opened the topic I expected to see an LSU Tiger.

      As did I.

      I do like the Panache, I was able to get some basically ripe ones at Trader Joe's.

    What's with calling Panachee "Tiger" all of a sudden? "Tiger" should refer to LSU Tiger that was released in 1957 with Champagne and O'Rourke. The fig powers that be decided Panachee was going to be the next fig they marketed to farmer's markets and stores out east, etc. and I guess Panachee was just not sexy enough. But as there already was a fig called Tiger it was a sleazy move as we have enough name mix ups as it is. PANACHEE IS NOT TIGER !!
    Thanks for letting me vent.mgg
