Given the forecast winter is descending on us and my figs are now dropping their leaves. Anyone in the NVA or greater Wash DC area wishes to swap tree trimmings this winter let me know.
Do you know the type of your fig?
If not, what is the color of the skin and pulp of fig fruits?
Brown turkey/Texas Everbearer, Celeste, White Marseilles, Beer's Black, Green Greek, White Italian, Chicago hardy. Several unknowns from Italy. I'll have Celeste cuttings in some quantity given the size of the tree.
I would be interested in White Marseille, Green Greek and the several unknown from Italy.
I got (to swap)Peter's Honey, LSU Purple, Atreano, Desert King and some un-named varieties I got from my friends.
I am interested in several unknown from Italy, if they are dark varieties, I have some Italian Honey(few left) and unknown green skin with amber Pulp).
Mark, that unknown Italian variety interests me.
I was born in Italy and my father had grapes and in between he had other fruit trees and a lot of fig. I have been looking for a green fig he had: medium to large, hanging when ripe and a drop of honey at the eye. It means a lot to me.
Let me know wich of my varieties interests you.
The Italian Honey I still have 3 cuttings, the unknown I do not know if it is Italian, looking for dark Varieties from your Italian unknown. please PM in the other forum under LEBMARK
