Does anyone know anything about a Purple Passion fig from the Houston area? I know there were few older post on this fig. Anyone have any new reports or info? Would it be worth having when the tree matures? Is is really a different fig than a BT offshoot?

I was just looking from some updates or any new comments. I was offered a small tree, and was wondering if it is worth the effort to go get it, and the space that it will take up.


Thanks,
CliffH

Yes, thank you for the links. I had read some descriptions of the fig. I was hoping to find someone on the forum that had some personal experience with the fig tree. In some older post it seems that a few members are, or were, growing this particular variety.
