  • A fig named Emma

    Anyone have this one? Seems to be English Brown Turkey, and I would like to try it out. PM me if you do!

    Here's some info on it: http://figs4funforum.websitetoolbox....highlight=emma

    Post #4: "I found the original Emma fig tree in Atkins, Arkansas. The tree had been in her family for over 80 years. At the time it was an unknown fig to me and I named it after the owner. I have gotten many figs off the original tree and one that I started for myself. I gave a tree to Herman and he is the one that was able to identify the fig. I was really surprised that it was a EBT, because I have read a lot of negative comments about Brown Turkey figs. This EBT is one of my favorite figs. I have never done any winter protection to this tree and I have never had any die back.

    Is this Emma fig tree the same as Vern's Brown Turkey? I know that you want breba producers and Vern's is supposed to be one.

    Wrong Vern, from and old GardenWeb post:

    "vern_2006(7) Your fig tree looks like my Vern's Brown Turkey. I bought mine at One Green World. It is not named after me.
    Vern"

    So, back to the topic of Emma, anyone willing to share it if they have it?

      I knew an Emma in college. It's been decades since I thought of her. She was fun to hang out with. Thanks for tweaking the memory.

      That's not what you meant, was it?
