    I thought you also have mature in ground Caprifigs? Or at least there is one very close to your orchard?

              With all of the cool figs you have? I guess this tells us something about how long a fig seed stays viable.

              The stay viable for long but cannot beat fresh by anything. Either seeds or cuttings!

            I posted this on F4F originally, but so far no one has answered in the affirmative. This thread seems like it would be a good place to repeat the question.

            ------ quote
            Saleeb (UCR 271-1), Croisic / Gillette, Enderud (UCR 228-20), Capri Q - are examples (of persistent caprifigs). These figs are not good homes for the fig wasp though, and artificial pollen transfer is required. Many of these caprifigs are edible, some better than others.
            ----- endquote

            My Q is does anyone here have a mature but dormant persistent caprifig they would be willing to take cuttings from?

                I asked him already but he doesn't have any cuttings yet. I was hoping there might be others around who were interested in fig breeding as a hobby.

                        Igor, I have 15-16 caprifigs in large pots and your black one is the earliest to start growing here, quite a few leaves on it already.
