We have made arrangements to collect all  the cuttings in the fall.

Is this a well known fig?

If anyone on the list has this fig where would it rate on the taste scale?

Could this fig be somewhat cold hardy?

I do not find it listed with pict. on this site.

There is one device that does work it is called a Scare Crow.
It is connected to a garden hose and when the critter breaks the beam it activates a impulse lawn sprinkler.

Do brown turkey ever start with a white eye?
The Pict of the fig is on the plant in the 3rd Pict labeled brown turkey

 To me the leaves of plant 1 do not match the leaves of plant 4 i am looking at where the leaf meets the stem.
How many leaves need to develop on a branch before you can try to identify the genes.

I screwed up
The first Pict. is a fig growing on what is labeled BT which is the 3rd Pict.
Pict 2 and 4 are labeled Kadota.

The plant labeled Kadota with the water bottle cap has all very small leaves.

I will be taking the Mary Lain to my son this morning. I live in Southampton Twp, and he lives in Mullica Hill about 1 hr south of me. We had a great time visiting Elias Market a must stop on the next trip.

I went into the back of my garage to check on my pots when I saw a bucket with about a dozen 2’ cuttings of an unknown  that did not get into the refrigerator.

They were in about a foot of water that I know must; have frozen. My garage is unheated and I know in Dec. that I had some vegetables in a basket that froze solid.

I find that the bottom of these cuttings are hollow for about 6” than the center appears the same as what were kept in the crisper    The cuttings with tips are still green and do not show signs of freezing. I have made 6” cuttings and planted them we will see if they set roots.

If I have cuttings potted up from last year and they did not produce figs  I cut them back to about 3 feet for the winter. How many leaves or how big must the plant be before you can have an idea of what kind of fig tree I have? I am not asking for a definitive ID

 of the plant but put in a class of fig trees.

I have read that the fig tree can have as many as three different leaf configurations.

Welcome Northeastnewbie

New Jersey is a big state what zone are you in.
I have some that i stuck in water bottles 3 weeks ago that have roots starting. The rooting times may be longer with may different figs.
I have some that have been in medium since christmas they have leaves but no roots.
How may different types of figs are you trying to root.

Hi Pete

You may try your local landscapers they usually do not recycle these pots.
You may get them free.

Count me in if you are keeping a list of early responders.
I am new to the growing of fig's and eager to learn.
Sometimes we learn the hard way. I checked on my cuttings i placed in a small refrigerator in my garage, only to find that it froze, all my cutting in zip lock bags wrapped in damp paper were frozen solid. I thawed them in cold water and now waiting to see if they will root. I am hoping that the ice would act like insulation as in fruit protection in the south.

HI Gene:

I am not far from the mark. I found an unknown fig in Egg Harbor Twp. this summer and asked the home owner if i could have some cuttings.
He said cut the whole thing down and take it away, so i did.
I have given several cutting to Herman and other folks i have met that are intereted in fig's.
I currently have a great number of 5+ foot leaders winterizing 3' under a large pile of wood chips which i have had for 6 yrs. Since i have never done anything like this in the past i will not know until spiring if they survived.
To protetct some i placed them in 6" pvc pipe with some damp paper towles,and taped the ends. Others are in covered with plastic to keep the chips from direrct contact. Than i covered some in just chips. I placed a large sheet of rubber pond lining over the top. "If you have nothing to loose by trying and everything to gain if succesful do it , do it now"
I run the chips in my chipper to make a great mulch.

Happy New year to all.
I am new to the world of figs.
My mentor  H2  a great person in Southern  New Jersey.
I just read an article by John Bowden PhD, CNS  on Natural Rx
Foods that boost the LAGGING LIBIDO
Among the standard foods such as Almonds, Chocolate, Chili Peppers, Oysters the all mighty FIG.
They are high in amino acids and are believed to increase sexual stamima.
Plus, they'er sensual, juicy, and sweet--perfect for "food forplay."

In animal studies nutmeg has the same effect on mating behavior as Viagra.

So folks put some nutmeg on your figs and have fun.
