Hey fig lovers
I had 2 trees that I moved to the new house 2 months ago.  One looks like it may not survive, just no leaves at all, now and the other is thriving.  Problem is I dont know which is which.  One is a black mission and other is a kadota.  I am attaching a pic, can you tell which one this is so I can replace the other one.  The fruit seems a bit purple and green.  I think it is the black mission....but does that fruit start green and turn purple or vice versa.  If it was a kadota, would the fruit start purple / green and turn green ?  I think not but I am no expert.  Thanks in advance

The ground cover has been such a PITA.  I have to go and trim it down every few weeks, keep it off the base of the tree.   I actually had to dig the hole there in the ground cover and clear it before planting obviously.  This is a slope that is maintained by the association and they may frown on a clear area larger than what I have cleared.  Slowly I will clear more and more of the stuff away.    Thank you for your input.

Hey everyone, this time last year, I came here trying to decide which figs to plant on a slope we have on our property.  So I decided on a black mission and a Janice seedless kadota.  I bought 5 gallon trees and planted them.   Had a bunchof leaves grow and a few figs on each last summer.  One issue I had was that during the heat (100+), it was hard to keep the trees hydrated well and at one point I lost all the leaves.  Fast forward to this season, we have had lots of rain in Riverside this year so far and weather has been mild.  I am attaching pics to make sure I dont need to make the "bottom" of the trees any larger.  And also how many times a week should I need to water these.   When I water, the water pools the bottom for about 5-10 minutes before it is gone.  Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the responses everyone....here is what I have decided, Black Mission for one tree and for the second, I would like a green variety with large sweet fruit (not like Kadota since the fruit is small) and also ripens at a different time compared to the Black Mission....the logic is such that I have figs at different times ....Thanks everyone....

Hello folks
Let me start by introducing myself, my name is Rudy and my family loves figs.  I want to get a fig tree.  Doing a yahoo search I cam to this site.  It seems there is alot more to fig trees than I ever knew about.  My parents have a tree that bears greenish figs that are great.  Last december, I cut off a branch and just shoved it in the dirt in the middle of my grass and it has just sat there.  My dad told me it would grow...LOL

There is about 12 inches of it sticking out of the ground, can I do something with it??? 

perhaps I can get some other variety since it is OK but I am open to a different type tooo....here is what I have
The place it will be planted will be an area of grass that is 20 x 20, next to my driveway.  I know fig trees can be huge, is there a kind that is tasty and can live in southern california, riverside area that is not a huge tree???  What kind would you recommend and where can I get one?  Thanks
