          That's a very nice looking fig! What did it taste like?

            nangkitakate do you think I should put the cuttings I have in my containers on my heating pad I am nervous do not want to dry out orchid moss I am away from my home for 15 hours a day I put cardboard over heating pad temp got to like 76 degrees do you think that is too hot do not want to cook cuttings I have them now against base board where the sides get warm not hot thanks

            CT ROB - that's probably not something I can answer from any experience, as I grow my cuttings outside on the back pattio in late winter. I have used a heating mat indoors in the past with citrus and avocados, but in my climate I've found it doesn't make anything happen any faster.

          Very good looking fig! Canโ€™t beat the seller either, I think I may get in on this one.. Fig fever is really starting to set in again.. just when I thought I was safe! Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ Does anyone know ripening dates for this yummy looking fig? Looks like mid-October for the OP but he did state it was a first year tree so wondering if anyone else has additional info?

            For me they set and ripened reasonably early this past season, I think they ripened in early September.

              Thank you Raf! This one looks very promising indeed, especially now that you have confirmed it can be ripened in earlier September here in the northeast ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผI donโ€™t believe Iโ€™ve seen any cuttings of this variety floating around here in the US before either. Hehe! Im so loving figbid already ๐Ÿ˜‰

                It's an extremely rare variety.
