I have one of these at 1gal size right now and growing like a champion.  It's a good grower.  I have two more small chunky twigs from another fig friend that I started recently that are budding nicely, still no roots.  I'm looking forward to it.

Martin,

Can you post photos of the leaves?  How does this one compare to Hardy Chicago?

Martin,
What is you secret that almost all of your figs have that nice deep red colored pulp?

I transplanted my Dark Portugese to a 1 gallon pot and the Ronde DB.  Both are growing like champs. The Grise is past history, but till late Autumn, I have  my hands full keeping up with watering what has survived  Dr. Woods transplanted his trees and they are also doing well .  Drought has been hard on the all trees in our area and many figs are ripening early and smaller than normal and some are shedding leaves. except the trees behind our store;  they are doing great.

Looks like the two cuttings I have bagged right now (3x8 bags) sent out roots - took about 14 days after being in the fridge for 6 months.  I like how stable of a rooter this one is.
