Aubique Petite. Received a well rooted layer in March 2012. Thanks Cathy. It appears as if it will share its bounty all at once. This 4'+ potted 4'6" tall has grown 2'+. Its nearest neighbors are VdB, Pananas Purple, LSU Purple, and Socorro Black. I suppose it has felt the pressure to be good because it is as good as advertised; complex, good size, juicy, and dense. I had to share these figs but there is more to come. If it had a few seeds for texture, it would be exceptional. You can see in the photos that Aubique Petite it is current enrolled in the FPP (Fig Protection Program) and the Fig Protection Service (FPS) is active.

An excellent all round fig. Marius(Ohio) was so kind to let us sample as many
figs as we wanted from his tree. This variant is productive.

The VdB pic is still the main print-out-and-hang best, though.

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.
