Thanks for the info. Yep desert king is about the be all end all of large figs crops in our neck of the woods. They are planted all over Victoria as well. You see a few other varieties but non produce like desert king.

Often, older leaves yellowing indicates a small nitrogen deficiency. Nitrogen is a mobile nutrient and if the plant is vigorously growing now that the temps are warming up, if there is a small lack of food ( this often happens to plants in pots) the nitrogen from the older leaves will be mobilized and moved to where it is needed in the new growing tip. Try feeding with liquid fish or with compost.

Hello out there in fig world, wondering if any growers from the PNW could recommend varieties that yield well in our climate. I'm on southern Vancouver Island, and our best variety is Desert King and it ripens only the breba crop. I've just picked my neighbors mature fig tree and got quite a substantial crop. I'm interested in planting a small orchard and would like to grow a few different cultivars to offer at market. Any suggestions?
