          I want a JH Adriatic so bad. No luck so far but still hoping to find one over winter. Looks delicious, amazing, sweet, jammy, etc...

            Looks good, Dave. This is one variety that I am looking forward to trying.

            Hopefully my trees will be produce in their 2nd year.

              Dave looks really good. One of my favorites. Too bad mine have been splitting lately.

                Those look awesome. I'm looking forward to sampling some next season. My tree was too young to produce anything this year.

                  Many of my JH's split like my pal Rafaels has. I did eat some fairly open ones and they were still good.
                  I love this plant, and to the people looking, these are not hard to find at all

                    You are a fortunate person. I bought three cuttings this year none rooted. I have killed them all.

                      It was tough to root in my hands to, relative to most. I ended up going 2 for 2, but dang did they take their sweet time.

                    May the Figs be with you!

                      You are so right Dave about JH Adriatic , what a great fig.
                      If I could have only one green fig variety this would be it.
                      Unlike most other varieties I've tried this one is even very good when taken a bit early.
                      I wouldn't suggest doing that , since the full ripe flavor is so incredible, but it has stood out for me in being more forgiving when you jump the gun on harvesting.

                        I can't decide if I should get an actual JH Adriatic plant or cuttings. I want to try rooting cuttings, but I also want to taste this! A plant has better odds I'm thinking

                          If you can get a nice plant, at a nice price,it's always a good jump start. But if your rooting skills are good I've found this guy to be a good rooter

                          Nicely shaped and productive tree, Dave. Due to natural form or your pruning/shaping ability?

                        Is that perlite on top of the soil?

                        She's a beaut, nice work. I hope my green figs will make figs that are juicy like that next year.
