    Barry,

    I think the CM 7 is awesome as well, a fig nobody ever seems to talk about. It needs a PR firm. If it was named Rouge de Chantinele it would be a LOT more popular.
    Cutting sales start Nov 1 at 9PM eastern time as always at willsfigs.com

      Origin and details of this one? I have been on the fig forum(s) for 2y and never encountered that variety.

      Sounds like CM7 may be the next must have fig.

        I had originally collected the CM figs from my wife's grandfather. He had about 11 trees he had acumulated over the years. I just numbered each tree to keep it simple until I could figure out what they were. Most turned out to be Kadota or California brown turkey. So far two (cm7 and cm3 which seems to match a peters honey type.)seem to be winners and I'm waiting to get more samplings from a third to see if it is the same as one of the others, buts it's a winner too. I had sent cuttings out to a lot of people 3-4 years ago, but the people either disappeared or there cuttings didn't make it. So not many people have this one.
        Also, the cm7 and another were his oldest varieties he got from another Italian in Trenton NJ in the 50s and 60s.

          I do remember that thread and story. Are you planning to make cuttings available again?

            Very cool, I can't wait to hear more peoples input about it and see more pictures.
            I think I remember that, it could have been right before you became an addict Scott.

              Scott... Really? Lol

            Yes, I would like to at some point try to get this one out there. I have enough that once they get growing they should be good. Unfortunately, due to his health, age, and some other things the trees have been neglected so I there isn't much I can cut from his trees and many were lost from the winters we have had and having to replace the septic at thier house.

              In the event that you will have cutting of CM3 and CM7, please post them. I'm sure there will be plenty of interest here.

                  CM7 does sound like a good one that I'd like to try someday.

                    Glad you chimed in Marcus, you have a real winner there. It is a must have fig! I'd say for me anyway it's superior to many of the so called premiums in taste.

                    Good to hear from old friends too Coop and Will.
