    Hey all just peeking in to say howdy and I'm glad to have found another great resource for fig knowledge! I'm from NorthEast Texas and have about 50+ fruit trees, with a few of those being figs(2 x Violette de Bordeaux,2 x Black Mission,1 x TX Everbearing,2 x Alma,2 x Celeste,1 x Lemon and on the way 2 panache, 1 kadota, 1 peter's honey) .

    So far I've really like growing them and am looking to expand to about 60-70 fig trees in the orchard, as well as broaden my knowledge of propagating and selecting varieties for the best taste.
    Wish List : Cold Hardy/Prolific bearers - Letizia , Florea, G. Paradiso, Lattarula, any Sals varieties, Negronne, Navid's Unk. Dark Greek, Bass' Fav.

          Humidity is in relation to the amount of rain we get, which typically is very little during the summer. I'm about an hour north of Dallas so in my opinion, low humidity.

          Welcome! I doubt you'll have much difficulty expanding your fig collection.
