Nice!
To clarify for myself, Tashkent is a city name. Is the fig's name Tashkent or Tash Kent?
Is Native de Argentina the same as HdA?
How much would be shipping to LA?

Flanders is a good one.... I describe the flavor like a strawberry kiwi wine cooler. I am planning on getting one locally.

I am assuming that Tashkent is Tash Kent and Native de Argentina is N d Argentile. Not sure why they have them misspelled.

People who are interested, should e-mail me.

Thanks for this Jon. I've got a good friend in El Segundo and I'm encouraging him to plant a few figs on his front lawn at his new home. I'll send him your way.

Tashkent is a flat, yellow fig that comes from the area around Tashkent Uzbekistan. I used to live there and they are a popular, tasty fig. Thick yellow skin and amber colored inside. They are the same as the "Sari Zybek" if I am not mistaken.

I would repot them now, and let them settle in. I have never done any experiments to see how much root development occurs in trees during dormancy, but I know that fall planted trees (this is paradise, not polar vortex country) take off faster in spring than spring planted trees.

They aren't dormant, yet, just like the rest of our trees.

Have them unpacked and sorted. Several getting picked up this weekend, or shipped Monday.

Just picked up a nice size tree, also labeled "Native de Argentina" from a nursery in San Antonio. They get many of their trees from Dave Wilson.

Unless this fig came from Argentina, I suspect that this might be a perfect case of misnaming and mislabeling straight from the source. I'm not sure but they might mean:

DFIC 86 Native de Argentile.

Even Native de Argentile might be a bad label.

In France there is a fig called Dauphine. It has many synonyms used. Among the names used for this fig are Rouge d’ Argenteuil or Ronde Violette Hâtive. You could see how easy it would be to come up with a name such as Hâtive d’ Argenteuil.
Just to give you an idea of how confusing the naming of figs could be, another name for Dauphine is Grise de Tarascon. By the way it's supposed to be an excellent fig. But is it a Sultane or is it a , Boule d’or or a Dauphine Violette? All these names have been used interchangeably as Synonyms for Dauphine.

Due to the fig biodiversity and casual naming, it is easy to end up with the same fig under different names or with two different figs that might go by the same name. I've seen this with Brown Turkey and Celeste figs. As you know by now there are many strains of Brown Turkey and Celeste.
It would be impossible to tell which is which unless you compare them side by side. That's one of the reasons I picked up this tree...

Jack, you may want to consult a mental health professional or seek drug counseling for help controlling use of inhaled substances. ;-))

Jon,
Ha, ha, not to worry, no happy smoke and current on all my meds.    Just a little "left coast" humor for the day...... :-)

I must think about one of those Violette De Bordeaux though, I can't start one those for the  life of me.  Last year the gnats got them and this year got cuttings that refused to root........ urgh.

Igor,
You da man,  that is a very kind offer and I would be delighted with an air layer.   Always happy to pay postage and maybe have something later that you like.   Thanks.....

Hi Sas,
Thanks to add to the confusion :)
Sultane is a dark small fig and a well (really ? ) documented strain on her own.
Violette dauphine is a strain on her own - not well known, but I have it now :) .
Dauphine (Name given in Paris) aka grise de Tarascon ( Tarascon is a region near Bordeaux) (Well you know fights in between regions.) is a strain on her own known to be cold hardy and a supposed "San Pedro" type.
I'm growing them 3 - still looking for them fruiting . But, I can tell those 3 are 3 different ones .
But one can imagine how Argenteuil could have been misspelled "Argentile" and misspelled "Argentina" .
