  • ISO Lyon from Gardencrochet

    Does anyone have this variety? I’m patient, I just would like some cuttings after this growing season.

        Yes. Lyon France is where the fig was found.

            UNK Lyon is a Mt. Etna type. I got my first few figs off of it in late October of last year. They had a very nice berry flavor. It is carrying one breba this year. It is still a smallish tree and I am looking forward to what it produces this year. I expect it to produce much earlier this year. The leaves are typical of Mt. Etnas. I have never eaten any other Mt. Etna to compare with other than Malta Black, which I do not see as a Mt. Etna as the leaves and fruit appear much different.

              PawPaw Gene Check out the 7th image link down on mnedelcu's post and further on down the page Sas' posts. Gardencrochet's picture on eBay looked a little different, but its probably the same fig.

                Ahh, yes. Sas included a cutting along with a donated plant. (Many thanks again!) Last year I got one ripe fruit. It was actually way over ripe because I had become paranoid about picking too early. It was so good. Tasted like juicy fruit gum. Hope to get more like that this year.

                  Now I'm more committed to growing it! That sounds delicious. I purchased two cuttings last year, (my noobie year) killed the cuttings, but in the back of my mind I was thinking about getting some more. Then Wills' cutting sale came along, Harvey's sale and my introduction to figbid, but no one was selling it so I forgot about it in my noobie excitement.

                I'm careful about making promises, but I'll keep you in mind for an air layer or cuttings if I can.

                  Ah no worries and no promises please, I’m stressing about the air layers I’ve promised already. 😅😅😅

                I just got one
                Its a couple years old. Should get a few fruits from it this year. It was very slow to wake up. My slowest (out of over 30) in fact. may make it pretty immune to spring frosts.

                  ZomVee I have a 1 yr old Lyon and it was a vigorous grower last year. It's been outside for three weeks and already grew a few inches. There is a branch or two that need pruning so if you don't find it, I can set an airlayer.

                    My family on my mother's side decended from the Lyon family and I wouldn't mind if I could find a cutting.

                    I have these to trade:

                    Cajun Gold ( much like LSU Gold but more productive)
                    O'Rourke
                    Native Black
                    Smith
