If you are going with her you should go visit the Orchard that covers one square mile, in Palermo. really something to see. Look for some Eggplant seeds there, they have some super Eggplants. There is one small one that is a favorite there, do not remember the name, fantastic tasting! Have fun!

I have opened a lot of Persimmon seeds and they all have spoons in them. All I can do is hope all my in ground trees make it. I lost all of them to the ground last winter
and this one may be wet and colder. dfoster25 I think you are right. If I do make any cuts I put tree coat on the cuts.

Subject: Is Beall a good variety? Replies: 19
Posted By: Jstall Views: 1,271
 

Where I live in North East Texas the Beall is a very good.  It grows fast and the figs taste very good. Here, it is a late ripening fig, late August first of Sept. I lost my first Beall but the second one is doing very well.
It died back last winter but made substantial grow this summer and produced several figs, as a two year old. The tree grew to a little over three feet in height. It will fit well in any collection, don’t pass one up. I purchase my second Beall from Dario. I never really knew what happen to my first tree but we did have a drought and I lost several trees that year. NativeSun has a good description of the fig.

My Palermo Red has not produced a breba crop, but it is young. The main crop is excellent and a beautiful fig. It has been said that it may be the same as Sal C. but I have both tree planted next to each other and although it does resemble the Sal it has different growing characteristics and production time. I also have notice, in my zone it has never split like the Sal does at times, Thanks Leon!

My I-258 is struggling. but it has not given up the fight. It has made a few fig, even being small. Taste is very good but the skins are tough. I contribute it to being slow growing. Has anyone else
had tough skins on this fig?

There is a Mega Celeste in my area, makes a beautiful tree. I think I posted some pictures of it. I samples the figs off this tree, they were very good. Herman said, they will sour in a wet year. We had a wet year this year but I did not go sample the figs.
Thanks for posting the picture Rafed.

I have an Adriatic JH that has not ripened a fig. It is three years old and grows figs but will not ripen.

It partially dies in winter but makes a good come back during summer. I do not think our temp. is cooler than it is in Austin, where the tree came from. Maybe next season it will produce for us.

JD, I got to sample a Gino's, from Herman this summer. They were fully ripe figs and their taste was outstanding. They ripened to an almost black color. I forgot to turn off the water to this tree one night and flooded the tree. The next day it poured down raining but the fig did not show any splitting and did not sour, sure seems like an excellent fig. I am really proud to have this fig.

I have a fig tree from Brazil. It was brought here by a man I know from Brazil. He told me he brought it here with him about 60 years ago.  I had this tree before but lost it at a very young age.
All I can tell you about the tree right now is the lateral and terminal buds are Maroon in color in the spring before they open, very pretty. I will
 see the tree in production later this summer and will know more about it.

Came across this tree, very different leaves, mostly heart shaped. Anyone know what it is?
 I tasted one of the figs. They do not have a real strong fig taste but they are very sweet.

Stone858 selling the Italian 258, I wrote to this seller and asked about the mother tree. He knew nothing of the mother tree.  He said he purchased the cutting and it was called Italian 258. He does not give any more information.

Gene, It was in the zip lock bag and jar about 8 days before it dropped the leaf petiole. After they dropped I put them into the bottle and it is a total of 27 days old. The other cutting, from same tree is behind this one but is rooting, it was a little greener wood.

David, thank you for the advise. When I saw the leaves the first thought was "how am I going to get this out of the bottle". One thing for sure, the bottle will have to be cut.

GeorgiaFig, You may want to dig up some of the roots and check for RKN. They will impede a trees growth. I hope that is not the case but it is something you need to thoroughly examine .

Poor Guy, maybe he let his enthusiasm get in front of his thinking and good judgment. Maybe we should welcome him and give him some good advice and help, Instead of jumping on his head with both feet. That is what this sight is about, right? Good advice Rafed.

 The birds got after the fig so I had to pick it. The scale I have only goes to 60 grams. The fig was to heavy for the scale. I am sure it could use another day to ripen. Even needing to ripen a little more, it taste very good, sweet with a mild flavor. I will get better with the photography, I hope.
