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? __________________ ------------------------

I'll guess CdD Blanc.
Based off of the thread title, I was sort of wondering..just what kind of thread is this? __________________ Calvin Littleton,CO z5/6 Wants List: For everyone to clean-up after themselves and co-exist peacefully. Let's think more about the future of our planet and less about ourselves. :)
