  • My ONE and only ripe Bi39

    Ciao Family!

    I go to farm today to water and I believe is last water of year. Every tree is looking sleepy and ready for winter nap. All of my bought,gifted and traded trees from everyone are doing very well most all with Fig on them but no enough time to ripen. I can no wait next year!

    Long behold Papa Bi39 came back belle! Some small Fig on it that will no ripe tis year BUT one single Fig at very bottom is ripe and a bit littler than normal but taste is explosive sweetness and remind me of home. So to all who now have Bi39 tis is preview of you fruit next year!!

    For member that no known Bi39 story I copy link to it for you read!

          Cool. I was wondering what the fig would look like. Nice colors.

          Mine has sprouted any figs yet but I've got some side shoots that I'm hoping I can air layer early next year to give away.

                    Mike I can't wait! I had to pull a little over half a dozen figs off of Bi39 this month. I'm sure she will have some nice ones next year.

                            Looks like a fig I gotta have. Oh wait, I already have it, thanks to you my friend.

                            It's going in the ground today. I picked a special place for it next to my front porch where, when I'm drinking my coffee in the morning, I can admire it and wonder how your fig orchard is doing.

                            It has a tiny fig at the top about the size of an English pea. I don't think it will ripen this season.

                              Grazie! Is sad to put to sleep now but I can not wait till spring. I may try give one baby 100 hour chill time and grow under lights over winter inside.

                                You wouldn't even have to put it to sleep this year if you wanted to grow it inside.

                                  Oh yes she is in ground... I must put to sleep. I make some cutting E pochi alberi che sono piccole but want to wait until the all sleep to offer to my friends on ourfig and I must repay a few member that already wait for Bi39 before I go into hospital. But I will have cuttings too!
