That looks like an excellent list.  Not sure how you can stop at 42.  I have 60 varieties, either rooting, rooted or in large gallon pots or ground, and several more promised and on my wish list.  With my UC Davis order, I may make it to 100 varieties, or just under that number.  Every single variety I own has certain attributes that made me desire to enjoy it's flavor.  I have many varieties that were sent as bonuses, which forced me to learn about those, and I'm pleased with every single variety I have.

Good luck keeping that list at 42!

not that i want to stop, but i have to stop. i'm completely running out my room. my study where is root the cuttings already have 3 bins containing total of 36 cuttings in cups. there are about 5 more being rooted in baggies. there are 3 more rare types coming in not to mention UCD. i barely have room to put my foot into that place along with our piano and computer desk. and my garage also ran out of room. there are about 30 1 gal container and few 10 gal containers and a 3 gal container with trees. any more will be pushing it and running out of place to store them.

i have few that will survive winter in NC with little protection outside. which means i'll put some in ground. but the soil around my house is clay. i know that will hold the water and possibly cause all the figs to blow up. so.. yeah... 42 is the number :)

I hear you about that having room thing.  It's tough to find places for all of them for sure, and they keep needing larger pots as they grow!  Sometimes lack of spaces forces us to get creative.  Like going vertical, or something like that.

Good luck to you Pete!

I know that feeling. I was talking to another member about how we have cuttings, bins and potted trees all through the house and garage. I was planning on stopping at 5 good trees, then it became 12 now I have no idea how many different types I have. I need to do some serious thinking of which ones to keep and which ones to get rid of. Some are small so I don't know their full potential as flavor and production. I think I'll be content with the ones I have now and the ones that will be coming in some trades. What to do, what to do??

I think I have surpassed the 42 mark now (Need to do inventory and see what actually roots this year). I consider it experimentation. This was the first year that I got any figs from my little trees. I kept note of those I liked best and those that I hope will get better in time. Nothing is a reject yet. Eventually, when we get a property that will allow planting inground, I plan to grow those varieties that taste and perform best here in coastal NC. Those trees that do not meet that mark will be moved on to others who may find them to be just a special as my own personal favorites. It's all about personal taste and climatic conditions. Like wine grapes, there are a myriad of conditions that influence the final product and if one favors it. Besides, I have to leave room for the other plants I plan to grow.

Ah, but to understand the meaning of the ultimate answer, you must first understand the real meaning of the question.

(Hint:  it is not the same as "What is your favorite color?", nor is it "What is the air speed velocity of a coconut-laden swallow?"... er, that is, "fig-laden swallow").
 
Smiles to you for your choice of number, Pete.  But if you're looking for ways to approach Jon's number (without turning it upside down), you could research this pyramid/stacking technique for potted trees (another member told me about it... it's how I got 42 pots in the floor space of 28).

Pyramid/stacking?  I think I can picture it!  I stack my coffee mugs that way!

So if you water the ones on top, does the water trickle down to the others?  And what if there is a big wind?  Sounds like a plan to me!

Hi Suzi.  I guess I misinterpreted / misstated which space problem the stacking solves.  I just stack them during winter storage (in the garage). So I don't have to worry about big wind.  But you've got me curious -- I wonder if it would work while they're growing?  (I feel another experiment percolating :-)

The water does trickle down through, and also since the pots are round, I can snake the watering can spout down in between.  

Be well!

Mike

mike,

unless i hit a jackpot somewhere.. win lottery or something, there is no way i can handle over 1,300 varieties of figs.

while spending my time in pubs, bars, and any place that would serve beer, i noticed that sooner or later, the question really doesn't matter. answer is always "beer".. or 42 in this case.

One important thing to consider.
Hows your back ?
I only ask as it sounds like you grow them all if not most in containers.

To keep them at optimum they need root pruning every 3 to 4 years even when in 25-30 gallon containers.
Smaller containers sooner.
Divide that number x amount of plants this is how many you will have to do each year on a rotating basis.

Its something that must be considered as i see on forum folks with so many plants just starting out in last year or so .  ; )

Yes hand truck helps with moving them around but thats about it not much to do with labor of root pruning .  ; )

I dont want to discourage you in any way sounds like you need some more white types as you can easily get rid of them and not have to painstakingly root prune them when the time comes.

i just showed my 11 yr old how to use knife and saw. so he will be doing some work come spring. my 10 gal containers need root pruning in spring. they are packed. i'll have to get rid of about 1/3 of the roots and make sure nothing is chocking it down there.

i'm sure rafed has better taste than me.. :)

I stopped at a specific number of figs as well, about 6 or 7 times. First I just wanted 2, then ten, then 30 was the limit, ok let's shoot for 40 and stop there, man I have over 50 now!, stopping at 60, currently over 70 with cups all over the place.

You mean Galaxy (not universe), right?  The answer is 42, but the question is tricky. 

I like the way Jon's number spells out ILEI upside down.  Who is ILEI?

Bullet,
Since you are in the south I think you should consider O'Rourke or an improved Celeste as one of your 42. I have read that these are excellent varieties and should grow well in your area. Or possibly LSU Scott's Black. Just make sure that you weed out unproductive varieties so that you never actually hit the 42 mark. That way you can continue to experience the joy of evaluating new varieties.

Well, anyone in "the know" knows 42 is not the answer, it is 17.  42 sounds like a good number of figs to have, but 17 is the universal answer.  Somehow many moons ago urban legend started this 42 thing, but it's all so incorrect.  Look it up, you will find 17 not 42.  And now I've given away my true identity, cause anyone that has met me knows my answer is always 17  : )  My story of 17 goes like this.....long before Hitchhikers Guide my middle school science teacher told us the answer to any question was 17.  So now when a person asks me a question pertaining to a numerical answer I blurt "17" and so far I've never been wrong.

Pete - I would add Smith to the list.

OK James, I'll bite since another person probably will.  I think you mentioned this in one of your posts a long time ago but what is the egg crate type material around the pots?

If you are done at 42, then you may want to delete your wishlist. Fig counts go by price is right rules. As soon as you hit 43 its game over.

Seriously though, 42 is a solid number.  My end game has always been a 10 tree orchard in which I do not protect during the winter here in 6A.  It's still my goal but like you said...there's always room for a few extra "special" ones.

i'm trying my best to make sure she doesn't have chance to complaint about the figs. making sure they are nicely tucked away before winter.. making sure that all the cups and baggies are hidden around my study.. make sure she knows that all the cuttings coming in are not costing arms and legs.. i think she still has more shoes than i have my figs.. lol

James,

Nice setup with all the Airpots, I have 10 myself atm with various fruit trees. I am looking at adding another 10 this year. How long have your trees been in the container?

Nice list! I may have the same issue one day, I'm sure I can be creative and make a garden on the roof of my house or maybe borrow my neighbor's yard and bribe him with figs:)
