  • My Fig List

    I finally got around inventorying all of my in-ground fig trees and thought I would share the lists with you'all.

    Seriously, I have got to start culling!

            Kerry, it seems to change each year. Ive had great success with the Alma twins, MBVS, NJ Red, Atreano, RDB, Sal's Corleone, Green Ischia, San Donato, LSU Purple, and of course Celeste off the top of my head...

            I noticed a few trees listed twice if that helps shorten your list up, lol.

                  I haven't listed my potted figs yet. There are almost enough to make a 5th hedge next year. Then I swear I'm stopping.

                        The two fig hedges closest to the pine trees that are not producing figs could die off as far as I am concerned. They do provide cuttings, however.

                        Is the lack of production due to the pine trees? Shade, acidity of the soil?

                        All of the above. Fortunately they are all copies of better situated figs.

                          Why you did not space them 36' x 36' (like Mr. M Pons ) since you have a huge lot

                            I took the link down, as it dawned on me that it could be a violation of Ourfigs policy. Part of the blog indicated that I would be putting up some cuttings like Ponte Tresa, Genovese Nero, et al on eBay. Sorry about that, everyone.

                              Absolutely not..put it back up lol.
                              Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

                                  You have been commanded and yes it was a violation but to take it down as I wasn't finished watching it the third time.

                                            I was hoping that some of the reports I read indicating it did not require the wasp were true but it does'nt look like it is the case1

                                            Oh, well... I think you need to send it back to California . It is one the best figs I have, very productive and super vigorous but requires the wasp.
