That is all and I hope I didn't miss anything.

Most of the 1gl. are from cuttings I got earlier this year. I rate my rooting success to about 60% and that is not bad considering I'm hardly home to take care of them myself all the time.

Anything that failed this season I will try again next season. Will not give up.

Looks like you really like vdb. Well whats not to like. Also you have preta? Do you mean the Portuguese fig preto?

RE: My fig collection

Black Mission should be in Container in your climate.
It is a super tasty fig,but not very cold hardy!

RE: My fig collection

Herman,
I must agree with you on the Mission should be in a pot in my climate. I was doing one of those thinking from the rear type of things when I planted it in the ground.

Ed,
Yes I do like the VDB. As a matter of fact I recently got some cuttings from a very well known fig friend. Just to try his VDB strain.

On the question for the Preta.
I got the cuttings from another member as Preto. I labeled it as Preta as per Adrianos website.
That's my mistake, I should have asked the source first to make sure which is which.

The problem is Adriano and the source are both Portuguese.
Now who is right and who is wrong?

You need 1 acre of land to grow all these fig trees!
Just curious, where did you get the cuttings of
Raspberry Latte, Genovese Nero?

RE: My fig collection

Rafed it's been more than two years since you started this thread. I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting an update on which ones you liked and and kept and which ones you got rid of.
