I'm growing out six different kinds of fig cuttings, two are brown turkey, one is lebanese black/purple, four are from a giant fig tree that's growing at a local hospital, (TMC)
Two are from another giant local fig tree that had large, yellow, gross, sour figs (hoping I can grow them better) if not then I'll use them as rootstock.
And the three others are from two random trees that had interesting leaves, one looks kinda like Italian 258

I just ordered six baby fig trees, with two acerola cherries from wellspring along with four muscadine grape trees from another company I found on eBay, so I'm starting a cuttings log to keep track of all my cuttings and or trees.

Make sure that at least one of your muscadine varieties is a self-fertile type so that they will set fruit.

Where are you located?

I just checked and all four are self fertile, I'm located in Tucson Arizona, so heat will definitely be an issue, I've always wanted muscadine grapes though, should work out ok. I'm planning on growing them in white 15 gallon grow bags, that way I can move them as often as I want till they are robust.

Update on the family of figs I raised from cuttings... looks like the Lebanese black/ purple is doing the best so far! :)
