Again, I will reiterate - Glad you had luck with this cutting, I didn't.  Bravo to you.  I'm lucky the person I shared cuttings with had a lot of luck and was able to return a rooted cutting to me.

I have a request to UCD for this Calvert variety.

I keep hearing that UCD's figs have FMV But, Your Calvert doesn't appear to have FMV in your pic.
I'm wondering if you have any signs of it ?

 How long did it take to get an answer from UCD to your request for it?

Dan i help point it out cause its a fact many do not realize what to look for unless its real bad then its easy to see.

Click 2nd picture then look at leaf at 3 and 11o'clock you can see the spotting. There the light spots.

Now look when i invert picture similar to x-ray and the spotting shows up as dark spots.
Click to enlarge it

All the Calverts I have shows FMV. Calvert shows more FMV than others. However, they are growing. As to if they will keep on growing and provide edible fig remains to be seen. So far, there is a good indication that it will put on the figs. But, I'll have to wait a year or two to see what the figs will look and taste like.

By the way, all my cuttings show FMV, just not as bad as Calvert or Ischia Green.
