Figs from reliable, pollinated seed?
I have a contact in Turkey who has several Turkish and other varietal seeds from fruits pollinated by the wasp. They do germination grow-outs to test for trueness of seed and fertility, and they claim upwards of 75% germination.
My questions are:
1) How quickly could I expect a fig to grow from germinated seedling to small sapling (about a foot tall)?
2) Are there other perils associated with growing fig trees from seed that would make this unappealing?
Thanks for any help - you can never trust the salesman.
