4-5 years ago I shared fig starts with some friends. The mother trees are the first two photos:
Petit Negri and Green Ischia. My friend was smart and planted the starts in 3 feet of composted wood chips. Pictures 3-6 are of the daughter Petit Negri and pictures 7-12 of the daughter Green Ischia with brebas. Just goes to show.... Attached Images

__________________ Especially desired figs: UCD 187-25, UCD 200-48, UCD 157-17, UCD 309-B1, Princesa, Black Madeira, high quality sugar fig that ripens Sept-Oct. Probable desired fig: Smith, St Jean, JH Adriatic, CddB, Gulbun, Pastilliere, Sucrette Rooting: Smith, CDDB--this pretty much means I have my fun tries (tho' important since they are truly desirable), and only interested for this year: Gulbun, BM, 187-25, or something wildly exotic or precious that nobody has any good reason to send me.
