    I thought it was fully ripe but I should give it more time. Still very sweet and tasty. Keeper for sure. And it has a perfectly closed eye.

    I got a freshly rooted cutting as part of a trade a couple of months ago, but managed to kill it the very first time I added water to the cup. I was intrigued enough by Karla's (Gardencrochet) statement that it was one of her favorite figs that I bought a couple of cuttings on figbid a couple of weeks ago to replace it, and so hopefully will get a chance to taste for my self in a couple seasons.

    Edit: This post made me go out and check the rooting bin, and one of the cuttings has a few 2" long roots already, so time to pot it up and go through the real struggle of keeping it alive (ie don't drown it) until it has a strong root system. If I can get this one established before 'winter' hits San Diego in a couple of months, I may even get to taste it next year!

      I have more fruits on the tree. I have a good feeling about this fig. It will be very very good fig if I let it hang couple of more days from this stage. We will see.

      I killed my Rosa Esmeralda cuttings....0/2 attempts on the fig. So I’m rooting for your rooting, maybe we could trade in the future.

        Seattlefiggirl Yes, it’s a common type fig, Gardencrochet says it’s one of her favorites.

          I am sure it is a common fig since I don’t have fig wasps at my area. It is not exactly berry type. It has a unique taste. Keeper for sure!

            It is common. I got mine from Karla. She holds it in high regard.

                I’m curious to see how this one compares to the rest. It looks delicious.

                  Looks really good but I think there's a typo. Isnt it "Rosa Esmeralda"? https://www.figdatabase.com/variety-...rosa-esmeralda

                    Never, I'm too humble for such things. I see from this post it has already been written 2 different ways and because I know Spanish, I figured it was a typo. Thanks for the "big man" labeling. I'm starting off the day good now 🥳

                    Bumping this to ask: how early is this one? I had a cutting I got from gardencrochet, it rooted right away, but then the gnats got it and I couldn’t save it. I’m thinking about getting a couple more cuttings but if it’s super late (by Oregon standards) it’s probably not worth my time/money.

                      Had a hard time rooting these, they budding easily without root growth. But finally I have one rooting nicely. Fingers crossed knocking on wood.

                        Bought cuttings of this one and they failed. Seeing this maybe I should try again. Very worth it. Maybe this one is not so easy. Yes, Good luck.

                      I bought one cutting of this from Gardencrochet over the summer and it rooted right away.... and then the gnats happened.

                      So I replaced it with a set of 4 from their website and holy crap. One of the four I got today was the size of a freaking relay baton. I really hope I can get one of these to take.

                        This is one of my more recent rooting exploits. Happy to say that all 3 of mine rooted.

                        Edit: Note to a mod if they see this, title should be edited to fix the name to EsmEralda. Cheers, guys.

                          I rooted 2. 1 started to fail but i salvaged it by inarch grafting. It ripened a few early fruit 2 months ago but now has several coming on line. Will post photos soon. They started to turn color this week.

                            Could you explain a little bit more about using inarch grafting to save a sick cutting?

                          Grafting Rooted Rootstock into the side of your cutting, leaving the bottom of the cutting that is rooting alone or bypassing any root rot (hopefully there's no internal rot)

                          If it takes, you will have 2 root systems to feed your cutting. Its a little late for me to go check the yard but I pulled these photo diagrams from online . The first shows a wedge point (new or desired rootstock) being side grafted into the Scion (in this case something with roots already). When it heals, you end up with 2 root systems and a boost for your tree. I have a few mango trees like that. Or you can cut away the old root system (what I ended up doing for Rosa Esmeralda when I suspected the roots were no good) once the graft heals and this is called an approach graft (second diagram).


                          Hope this helps
