Very nice!
The vicinity of the Danube and the mountains must provide a nice micro climate for the figs.

Awsome. Thanks for sharing.

Notice the mulch around the base of each tree. I've heard all my life fig trees love full sun and the roots like to be under mulch.

Mic at the end of the video, they say they have another orchard, larger than this one.
There is a second part of the video, with some work in progress around fig trees:

For sure You have the best location in Romania for fig planting. You have luck. Trees look very nice. Can you tell me something more about variety that you have? Give also breda crop or only main crop? Is interesting for me because I'm from Valenii de Munte, so  not so far from You.

Like I write at begining I have no relation with this fig orchard,
I don't know the owners or what cultivars they are growing.

Figs are growing in their region for century, the figs are growing 
almost in every garden, even in the wild form.

Welcome to the forum ! What fig cultivars do you grow?

If they are closer to you, maybe you can visit them
and let us know what cultivars they grow!

Well, yes maybe I have to go with a visit.
I'm beginner, so I can't say that I grow something is to early. However I have Peretta, Dalmatie, Brunswick, RdB, Pastiliere,  Brown Turkey, Panache, Michurinska-10 and some 4 no name (2 from my friends from Poland and 2 that I find locally in Romania).

Unfortunately some of them have a virus so now I have to renew my collection.
