Growth Stimulant Sprays
Hi to u all....
My name is Joe, a fig enthusiast from Canada. I have been growing figs in pots since 2004. This forum is great to learn because of the great expertise shared by you all...thanks.
I read in notes from Belclare Nurseries, they experimented with growth stimulant sprays on a San Pedro, purple/black fig called Perkounis. This fig only produced brebas. Upon spraying this stimulant on the eye of the female figs on a half point of a 28 day cycle, they obtained a main crop of figs, seven days later. They repeated this for several years in a row. Then stopped the spray on the fig and found out the fig tree adapted somehow to continue fruiting self-fertile figs henceforth.
Does anyone here know or can elaborate further the details of this and what are the names of the sprays mentioned. It is noted the sprays came Edible Landscaping (Afton, Virginia)
Any news would be appreciated...
