Sue,
That's a nice picture you posted.
Is that insect in the Grasshopper family?

I'm guessing it's harmless too.

From a couple of years ago... if I remember correctly, this is a Paradise Nursery 'Atreano' that split in Houston.

Rafed,

Actually I was wrong. It's not a leaf hopper but a Katydid. It is in the grasshopper family and some are considered pests as they feed on leaves, stems, fruit, etc.:

Hi Sal,
those figs did not ripen . This plant overall is somewhat of slow grower for me and wants to grow like a bush but i wont let it. It has only the two side branches as i kept the others pruned off and left figs on to get an idea of what they looked like somewhat i was curious.Hopefully this season i get to taste a few figs.

One of the branches will be air layered for a member that asked last season and if that person reads this please email me.

The other has to stay for now. This is my second favorite plant to look at and shape . Only a few plants now i can let grow decent size because of limited storage space this one will be one of the bigger ones if the figs taste good to me.
One day its my hope to be live in a climate where most my plants will be inground and not so darn constrained in a pot.

I did a search on the other forum and found your post and some pics that is one nice looking plant I'm thinking a Panchee would be neat to just for the way the figs look but I also understand it is a good tasting fig. I might have to break down and get some cuttings but I really don't have the room maybe just one more

Sal "has room for maybe one more". ha ha.....many of us fignuts have said that very same thing only to later justify to ourselves in getting just one more after the last one more acquisition.

Hey Martin - your last picture... is that a picture of what is called a "mule flower"? It looks like the drawings of mule flowers I've seen in books, but I've never seen a true picture of one. I guess they are common of Adriatic figs, but until this year, I've never personally owned an Adriatic!

This was a picture of a fig on one of my plants last season.
Im not sure what a mule flower is.


 o
RE: Your Favorite Picture-Fig Plants & Figs Only

Please see link to Eisen's book for pictures and info - this page, and the page preceding discuss them. Others have brought up the topic of mule flowers in the past, but it's not something you hear folks talk about often. If I hadn't read Gustav's book, I wouldn't know what they were either.

Here is a link that might be useful: Mule Flowers, explained

RE: Your Favorite Picture-Fig Plants & Figs Only

After reading that pehaps it was a mule flower.
This growing season i should get figs from this young plant unless it keeps snowing out here.
Thanks for posting the link.
