My fig tree (pics)
I`d like to share some information concerning my in-ground fig tree (unknown variety). At the beginning I`d like to say that we had very strong winter. Temperatures we had were very low - minus 30-35 C during 3 weeks, and minus 20-25 C during almost all winter. My fig was buried and wonderful survived that severe cold. After the winter, the tree had survived almost with no damage, except the ends some branches, which were affected with moulds. It happened probably because most of the tips were not enough lignified. And one thing - from the beginning of august I applied some potassium sulphate. It should make the fig tree more cold hardy (just make lignification faster).
And this year our figs starting to ripen. I think, that is a kind of success in my climate zone. Aha, once more, I am still looking for Desert King and Chicago Hardy.
