UC Davis cuttings suggestions?
I'm mid season into growing my first cuttings - taken from a local tree. I'll eventually post pictures of a ripe fig and leaves from the mother tree in order to get a better ID than 'white fig'.
In the meantime, however, I'd like to put in a request from UC Davis and I'd like some suggestions from the experts (or not so experts).
While I understand that some UC Davis cuttings have FMV, I'm not sure I care as long as they grow (I don't really have other choices for cuttings). I'd like to grow a range of taste, color and size and likely graft several varieties onto a tree or two at the end. Several of the trees I would think they would have - like Chicago Hardy - they don't.
So, I'm in Mercer County, NJ (think Trenton and Princeton) with a backyard that has full sun all day.
I'm thinking so far about:
Violette De Bordeaux
These seem to have a lot of 'buzz' surrounding them.
I'd like to grow a range of taste, color and size and likely graft several varieties onto a tree or two at the end. They will start out in pots and eventually be put in the ground and wrapped in winter.
Would anyone like to suggest additional varieties which might do well in my area and be fun/productive to grow?
