    K. Let me know. I think I’ll be at the veranda for the Staten Island fest in the 25th with a BMKK to trade it sell if I can.

    Hey guys, I'm embarrassed to admit this but I don't think any of my air layers have taken I laid five and I'm seeing roots in them.
    I am going to see what happened, am still going to try and air layer these but IDK what happened. If my air layers aren't ready I'll mail them to you guys when they become ready.

    If he got it from Florida it may have been originally from Olga. Sounds promising! If your I258 trade doesn’t pan out let me know, I have an extra.

    I have Craven's Craving, I have an extra plant right now from rooted cutting of Genovese Nero AF which some say is the same as I-258. I have no clue?

    At some point everyone can have it, Ferd. I put on 3 air layers this year to get more wood for years coming.

    I'm fairly certain that it's the real deal. Unfortunately the old man I sourced it from was on the other forum otherwise I'd try and get his bonafides. He told me he got it from Florida I think.

    Fico Martana is super rare in the US. Olga has a connection to get some of the most rare from Italy. That would be great if you got the real deal, even better if the figs ripen.

    Well people ought to know that, but I don't mean to put your fig down in any way. Let me know if you don't get a trade set up for BM (kk).

    Excellent question. I don't have a 100% ID but the figs I had last year looked like a less ripe version of the fig pictured. So I suppose I can't say with certainty. That being said the guy in LI did have multiple ID tags on the fig. Perhaps I'm assuming too much honesty.

    Ferd... how can you be sure that photo is of your fig though. If it's from some guy in Long Island, it could be anything!

    So I bought it from an old man on Long Island who was getting out of figging. I did a search and found an Italian website that says it comes from southern Puglia by the coast but not much else. If I had to guess it probably takes 120 days to ripen. I came so close to having one last year but it dropped

    Somewhere I saw cuttings of this tree move for an absurd amount of money but I'm in the fig proliferation camp.
