Glad you got your information. Hope you tell us what you will be selling. My collection is still very small and I am looking for trees and cuttings.

Nelson, I wish Home Depot and Lowe's had a place to leave negative feed back. There ratings would not be 100%, as far as I am concerned. They sold me fig trees six years ago that will not produce fig here. They sell a lot of other fruit trees that will never make fruit in this area, and tell people they will.

Bill, I have Cutting Propagation by John M. Dole and James L. Gibson and Plant Propagation by Alan Toogood. Both very good books.

Martin, I like to look at it this way, the other years were abnormal and this year is normal. We had a normal summer and we are having a normal fall :)
And Sue, keep your frost on your pumpkin there please, at least for another month, that would be normal here.

 Take a look at http://www.hydro-gardens.com they have propagation mats, a little more safe. I have used one of theirs for 8 years and it is still in good shape. Just looking they have a 22 X 14 for 42.95 plus the thermostatic control. Good luck!

We had a long discussion about some trees my great grandfather brought here and I was thinking he may be able to tell you about a true Peters Honey. He seem very knowledgeable. I have one of his Triana but it is very young.

I live in the back woods and I am lucky that I have 28.8 dial-up, so e-bay is a losing proposition for me. Most items I have won were buy now. Yes, and I have placed high max bids and lost.

Nothing wrong with some fried specs, grilled red fish mixed in with the sac-au-lait and catfish, once and a while. I know one thing, this fat boy is ready for some cool weather.

I finally got an e-mail to go, at least I did not get a reply that said, not deliverable. I did not send an order I want a question answered. I called Fedx and they say shipping was 70 bucks. I was told about the post office route and wanted to contact them about this.

 The Brown Turkey we have gets very dark purple, soft to the touch and skin cracks a little, when ripe. It is funny to me to see someone having a B.T. with figs right now. Our tree has long ago stop putting on figs, even little green ones. It is finished about the first week of August. This is a older tree about ten foot tall.

Gene, it sounds like you need a fig like my dad had. He lived in LaMarque, Tx by Galveston. The fig never was sour, never split and was closed eye. They got as much rain as you do.  I have no idea what the name was but it was a green fig that ripen green. It was sweet, he called it a sugar fig but he call all figs sugar figs. When it ripened it was hard to tell because it never changed color. It had a red meat.

I think a fig tree producing fruit has to do with plant nutrition more than anything else. It would be very interesting to see the difference in the nutrition levels in both his soil and yours.

I moved two suckers from the roots of my Brown Turkey in late June. Cut they way back when replanted. They have grown to about 24 to 30" tall and both have small fig on them now.

Glad you made a good, safe trip. If I would have known about Old Bob I would have got you to pick up my tree. The last time I got nailed by a dog it hurt, bad!
 Cecil, did you read the past post of Gorgi about the O'Rourk not being an Improved Celeste? Did you talk to J.R. about this? I know he told me they were the same.

Anyone able to get an e-mail to UC Davis? I have tried to e-mail a question to them but I get an unable to deliver message back. A friend told me you could send a 9.95 stamp with your order and this would take care of shipping the order. I wanted to see if this could still be done.

Cecil is holding out on us. You just don't go to Mr J.A. Robin's and get one fig tree and not have something to talk about, when you get back.

 What do you think the ID of this fig would be. I do not have a picture of the fig but it is green with red pulp. Making lots of figs now. Have any idea?

 The mower is big. I found out it does not take much of a hit to kill a young pecan tree.

I know you ask what was spent on one plant but if you look at what was spent to obtain one successful plant. I have 21 growing pecan trees on my place. I started 25 years ago planting pecan trees. To establish the 21 I can not tell you how many I have purchased. I can not divide the 21 into the amount spent to establish the 21 because I do not really want to know. Number 22 was killed by my wife and her lawn mower this year. I am sure I will purchase another one to replace it. I hope my new hobby, fig trees are not going to be so expensive.

Herman2, you say poor soil, rich soil, it would be nice to know what one soil has the other does not. This would be a good comparison to see what effects the fig in growth and taste, like the eye being open on one closed on the other. You may already know this, I do not. I hope I am not misunderstood here. An example, I grow fantastic onions on my place. I changed the area I was planting and the onions were not near as good, a richer soil area. We re sampled and found I had put to much chicken litter there, we feed chickens copper sulfate. It raised the sulfur level and made the onions strong.

Congratulation on the 1000 post and I agree with you about the site. I have made a couple new friends here and looking forward to making a lot more.
I have spent my time reading past post, including yours D. and they are informative and interesting.

OK, all the pictures of these Delicious figs drove me to this. I put the shredder on my tractor, pulled it up to my fig tree, got off the tractor, shock the H_ll out of my fig tree and told it "if you don't make me some figs now I am going to drive this thing right over you"!!!

Papayamon, the Brown Turkey I have is about ten foot high and about 10 years old. It's season ends around the last of July. It is a very heavy producer but when it's season ends it quits no matter how much rain, sun shine or hot weather we get. I do not know anything about figs but I can tell you about the BT I have. There is a Celeste, as I know it in town that will make figs until about the middle of August, than it quits.

Gene, you know me as WhitePerchJerker and you know I go after Sac-au-lait regularly. I am 13 miles west of Logansport. I can not get to far from Louisiana. I have lost my fig trees to the winters. They died back every year but last year, only part of the tree died back. They are 6 years old. It really does not matter because they turned out to be trees that need to be pollinated, not good for anything. Lowe's and Home Depot got me. But I am learning, as I told you before. Thanks to all the good people on these forums, I am learning fast.

Gene, I have this vision of you and a forty-foot flat bed trailer full of fig trees on the evacuation route

One thing I do not understand about our buddies way up north, around Shreveport is they put their trees in the garage. I am sure it gets as cool in the garage as it is outside. Why are the trees not affected by the cool inside the garage, are they heated?

You get a lot of that from Lowes. I purchased a Celeste and a Texas ever-bearing and they both were Celeste and a very pour representation of a Celeste. The Horticulture professor at A&M said it was not even a Celeste that is was some fig that needed to be pollinated.
