I had a pack of Excel cutting that I sold to someone but they were too long to fit in the envelope so I took a bit off the bottom of each of them.  Instead of throwing the bits away I put them in a bag of peat and forgot about them for a month or more.  At this point these are all growing nicely in 4 inch pots.

Looks like you may have some young Excel trees to trade this fall? Anything you might be looking for?

Hi beyondista,
Are you giving them a pot (a chance) ?
Keeping them alive will still be a challenge, due to heat of the coming Summer and because of that whitish growth ...
Good luck !

It was actually pretty easy to harden them off and pot them up, I was surprised considering how tender they look at this point (this photo was from about 2 months ago). I only lost 1 of the six, and that was because it got way too wet...  This is about as close to tissue culture as I'll ever get. :)

Gene, I'm container growing in Wisconsin so I'm looking for varieties that have a good chance of ripening fruit given the length of my growing season.  I'm looking for Early Violet, O'Rouke and I'd like to get a few more of Ira Condit's creations.  Conadria is by far my favorite fig so far, and more than half the fruit ripen on my trees.
