IÃ¯Â¿Â½m a fig fan from Germany. I live close to the French boarder in the southwest of Germany. The relatively warm climate here, sometimes described as submediterranean, allows the growing of fig trees, pomegranades and other "exotic" plants such as windmill palms, almonds, peaches or nectarines. Although I have several mediterranean plants the fig tree is definitely my favorite plant. At the moment my collection consists of Negronne, Goutte DÃ¯Â¿Â½Or, Madeleine, Pastilliere, Brogiotto nero, Brown Turkey, (probably) Tena, (probably) Abicou and a bunch of hardy varieties from Germany, Northern Italy and Eastern France.
IÃ¯Â¿Â½m looking forward to an interesting exchange here in the forum.
