Figs in Uruguay?

Anybody know of any sites I can go to for fig growing information in Uruguay? I'm thinking of moving there and I'd like to know if I can grow figs there.

RE: Figs in Uruguay?

Just spent a good few moments reading about Uruguay on Wikipedia. Moderate temps year round, and sufficient rainfall (40 inches per year. Perfect!) for fig production. Never freezes, but cool winters and warm but not hot summers. Oh man, figs must do great there! I would too, but alas! Florida is home for me.

Enjoy your time there.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to see about the legality of bringing fig cuttings into Uruguay with me. I'll post any further information I find here in case anybody else wants to move south.

RE: Figs in Uruguay?

Hey, thanks for staying with the forum. Further reading indicates that Uruguay is a fig crop exporter. You can obviously get some when you arrive. If, on the other hand, you cannot get fig trees there, I will personally mail you three cuttings from different varieties. No charge. If they get thru customs, what the heck.

RE: Figs in Uruguay?

Thank you, Budbackeast! A friend and I were talking about a good way to "sneak" fig and other cuttings into Uruguay to avoid them dying if customs drug their feet. We came to the conclusion that marking scions with a fine point sharpie then dipping them in wax to preserve moisture would possibly keep them viable for a few weeks. I could then make "baskets" or "place mats" from them to get them in easily. LOL!
