I have purchase a Fig Sapling from a nearby Nursery in Hyderabad, India. The Leaf resesmbles shape of the Heart or Spade in a deck of cards. Can you tell me the fig variety. Is it Hamma Caprifig??
Glad to hear that the forum has members growing figs in India. That's really cool. As far as identification goes, it is very hard to identify a variety without photos of the leaves and the fruit. I have an unknown that I am waiting to have identified as well, but I have to wait until the fall when I have pictures of fruit and leaves to post. Best luck with your fig. If it's a caprifig it probably won't produce edible fruit. Hopefully it's not a caprifig.
Even with pics of leaves and figs, it just a guessing game. Lots of different figs out there that look a lot alike. Only way to tell for sure is to send samples to somewhere like UC Davis and have them analyzed. Not sure if they would do that without a hefty fee.
jgkonnully, your description sounds like it might be Ficus auriculata, the Elephant Ear fig. An internet search should bring up pictures to compare with your fig.
Thanks. I finally identified my Fig Sapling as "Ficus Auricula ta or Elephant Ear fig. It is planted in semi-shade, southwest backyard of my house. It gets about 2 hrs of sunshine everyday.
