Well I moved some trees in the garage for some figs to ripen. checked them yesterday to find  they did ripen and a mole got to them before me. And one of the trees he dug a hole to the roots and shredded them. Any Ideas how to keep moles away from my trees. Ive used mouse traps in the past with good success this year  i let my guard down and they got me any help would be greatly appreciated

I have grown up eating this fig. I was my Dads tree in queens NY. Never covered in the winter, just cut down every year,and produced tons of figs. I brought plates of figs and cuttings to Chris from Belclare nurseries in L.I N.Y. He could not ID it because he said it was similar to a few but the taste was unique.Here is some info has two crops when its hot.Has a closed eye, the taste is not to sweet and jam texture. Could be from Italy or Greece any help would be appreciated
 Thank you

Mean while I did acquired an unknown that is identical to yours,so I will sort them out very soon.

But as you can see this tree produces both 3 and 5 lobed leaves.

My tree also has both 3 & 5 lobe leaves on it. this is the first time it produced figs and a lot of them. they are getting ripe now and its getting cold I thought they wouldn't ripen but they are. I am happy with the taste

            Dan I was on a cruise ship when  I got to each  Island I took cuttings  in my bag . threw x ray and they didnt say anything. then in Italy they were wrapped in my bags not problem. Then customs in Philly & NY no problem. But I was sweating each time. what we do for  figs is nuts
