One day about 2 years ago I got a 3-4" cutting of 2 highly sought after varieties because one of the forum's most experienced members wanted to do something nice.  Here's a photo of one of those cuttings today

[20140629_202251] 

Can't wait to try them!

Hi Figaro,
I was wondering the same. Perhaps the 100$ question !

So Rcantor, which cultivar is that one ?
Judging on fig size, those figs should ripen for you ... Unless your neighbor makes a barbecue next to the tree ...  Damn neighbor !
Hum..., My two cents on Maltese Falcon or beauty because of the story you told about and the small size?

Very nice.
It seems it is always the most cherished ones are the ones that perish. It is good to see this one flourish!

I'll guess CdD Blanc.

Based off of the thread title, I was sort of wondering..just what kind of thread is this?
