This is still in a solo cup with slits on the sides planted in a pot. 7 months old. Cutting was really white and dry so it grew very slow. Probably should pick the fig off but going to let it play out. Think it suppose to be dark green with yellow stripes

Nice going, Richie.... None of mine grew figs this year and I think we started them at about the same time....

Richi be patient, figs are crazy .
For weeks they linger and from one day to another they inflate and start to ripe.
Hope you get the chance to taste them. I'm no expert on the subject but get surprised all the time by them , they change from  small green to big pale green in one night.
wish you  good on the final result.

Thanks my friends. Hope to see a ripe fig soon. Would even be happy if it's bland. Just want to see how pretty and cool looking it will be.

Nice. Really ripe without splitting. Was yours a small tree that produced. These rimada are just exciting to grow to me. I'm even excited about my panache fig I got from a member here.

Crademan I will be posting pics as it changes up to the point when I cut it open and taste it. Hope the wild life gives me a brake.

Figwood you will have one one day. Pretty soon this. Forum members will have more of these good varieties to share once they are big trees.
