I've been eyeing this fig and was hoping Jon would have it on his list for sale, but sadly it wasn't available.  I was hoping someone would have a cutting or two that I could buy? I don't really have much to trade.   PM me if you do have some!  Thank you!
*fingers crossed*

I was looking for this one and sad it wasn't available as well.  Let me know if you find it, and I'll do the same.

Really nice fig, but slow growing.

Sarah, 187-15 is a good fig. Like Jon said, its a slow grower. There are so many other UCRs out there that are comparable in flavor and taste. I posted some here, just search for post I started and you will find them. Good luck and happy figgin'!

cheers

135-15s seems to be a San Pedro type, which is good for Breba, but needs pollination for main crop. Nice fig, probably similar to Desert King.

Thanks everyone! @Vicks I haven't checked out those varieties. I'll have to take a peak at those :)

And thank you Dennis for taking the time to post all of those findings on the figs you sampled.  That is most helpful.
