  • Unknown Green Lebanese fig.

    Hey guys, I recently spoke to a kind and generous man on facebook and he has promised me cuttings of this unknown green skinned Lebanese variety free of cost. He described it as having an amazing complex berry flavour. I am really looking forward to it. He sent me a photo of the fig which you can see attached. Does it have any resemblance of a fig you are growing? Do you think it will be a winner just by looking at the photo?
    I will keep this thread updated as I grow this variety in the next few years.

        It does look rather appetising, hopefully the taste is as good as the looks!

            I'd probably name it Col de Dame Ofon as it only makes sense! But dang that looks like a very tasty fig!
            Wish List: I don't even know at the moment. A mild winter for nice growth in the Spring I guess?

              Hey guys, since my original post, I have acquired cuttings and am in the middle of rooting them. One of them has taken and another is pushing out leaf growth but I am unsure if it has roots yet.
              Does anyone agree that the leaf shape is rather unusual? I have never seen anything like it.

                This looks exactly like a tiny leaf that has emerged from a live cutting that my dad sent me recently. The cutting came from a neighbor's tree and is a green fig with a red interior. He does not know the name....

                  That is interesting! We should compare the fruits when you get some and see if they are similar.

                      The center lobe is really pronounced and looks like CLBC leaves. Maybe you found a green version. :-)
