Guys i don't want anything money wise. Just pay for shipping, or if you have some blackberry or grapes or anything that will grow here, i am willing to pay shipping if you ship me something.

Figman, i think the name of the fig should be paradiso nero , which means black paradise.There is also a paradiso bianco, which  is white. Check it out at 
 www.ficuscarica.com. Nice fig very tasty.

Jim the persimmon is non astringent i believe!! it is called vanilla persimmon in italian it grows the size if a big apple and it turns yellow inside and it tastes like vanilla it also stays hard like an apple. Frank, the figs come from the molise region that is were i was born.Tomorrow i will post pictures of first figs to ripen in green house and try to identify one tree at a time. Blb building greenhouse was the best thing i have done i have figs outside and every winter they die and then come back in spring but they die all the way to bottom this year the 2 trees i had in greenhouse came out from top never died back. Farmer i wait till trees go dormant in nov. and close all sides on greenhouse and they stay dormant till spring when i open it back up

The size is 14x40 and it's open on 2 sides which i close in winter. These are all figs
that were planted in spring only two figs were planted last year. They all come from italy . I have been researching their names in italian and i hope some people can tell me what is what. There is an italian persimmon in there but i will move it out next spring.

Bill my greenhouse is overcrowded i put about 16 fig trees in a 14x40 greenhouse with a 10 foot ceiling my figs are going nuts i have hundreds of figs and most of them are only a year old i dumped a bunch of manure on top of the ground and mixed it with the soil  my figs are in a 2 feet raised bed in the greenhouse and root naturally in winter i just close one end that stays open all year except winter i have clear panels on top and two sides i collect rainwater in a 1500 gal tank and this year i dumped one gallon of fertilizer in spring when it was full i only used water from tank to water the figs and my other fruit trees i have never seen stuff growing like this when you have time take a ride in august and we will eat all kinds of figs and Sara you are welcome too and when you leave take all the cuttings you want

I have about 6 different variety of italian figs from the old country. This summer or fall i should have some to trade. I am interested in some blackberry plants if you have some i would like to trade. I don't know the names of the figs i know the dialect names we call them but probably wont matter. I live in Kentucky and i would be glad to correspond with anybody. thanks, Mario.
