Congrats nice tree.
  I have some cuttings and a few small rooted trees.
I was ordering some other fruit trees from Stark Brothers so i orderd a Hardy Chicago fig tree from them .
It came in a well rooted 4"x4"x10" pot about 28" tall perhaps 1/2 caliper size with a few green buds .
I potted it up ina WalMart 16" self watering pot . using 70% MG poting soil and 30% perlight.

Would a tree that size have fruit this year or in a couple years ?

Paw paws grow wild in s.e.neb an old gentleman who lived next to me  years ago had a few trees in his back yard . His trees had way more fruit than the ones in the woods . He told me they were polinated buy flys not bees . He clamed he got more fruit buy hanging a little rotting meat in the trees to attract flys to polinate his trees.

Any one else ever here of this ?
