I managed to get a plant just in time. it is about 6rs old now last season i root pruned it because it wasn't producing for a couple of years and i was debating to toss it or give it a chance. glade I did its loaded with figs funny thing this year  it had no leaves but figs till last month.the leaves started any guesses what it is? thank you
 Enjoy Paul

Hey Dan
 I am not a Newbie but a newbie to this method I have cuttings waiting to try this method. The shape of the bottle dose it limit the air and causes condensation? I have no clue but am going to try it I have the cuttings in a zip lock waiting to do this.
               thanks Paul

Hi everyone just got back from my Honeymoon/ Fig hunt. Found few fig trees in Venice Italy all behind fences, no luck. Next was Croatia Greece manage to get a few cuttings not sure what  kind I will have to root them. Next was Crete Greece went to the beach and on the beach was  a great big fig tree waiting to greet me. I ate figs from it till I was stuffed. I asked a local man  about it he said it was self pollinating and has been there for years and he said  it was called achios Apostoli. that is the name of the church and beach and thats what they called it no formal name.( it was a big green fig red center I have pics) got some cuttings. next Mykonos Greece Found lots of large green fig got some cuttings and pics. onto Santorini Greece Found lots of  large green figs got cuttings and pics. last was Katalolon Greece Jack pot again  fig trees every where. tour bus dropped us of at the beach  wife went swimming I went fig hunting. I found  a ton of trees everywhere. I ate till I was stuffed got cuttings and pics no one could tell me  the name but just  Kouroutas the name of the town its in. large green with red center. sorry for boring everyone, next was to get every thing through customs. I was stop on the crew ship once told them it was a branch no problem. wrapped everything in my bag and it made it through customs in Greece,Italy and the U.S. Boy was I sweating what we go through for FIGS Now the question What to do with the cuttings put in the fridge or try to start and how?
         enjoy Paul

Im not sure LJ but when  I posted it a few years ago for ID Herman said Well ,I had both cultivars discussed here:Fico Gentille and Desert King.
They are very close and similar,and also breba figs.
If that fig came from Italy,I am sure they called it Fico Gentille,yet if it had west coast origine it was aquired as Desert King.
It is one of the 2, no doubt
H2 and finding out it was brought from Italy I would assume its Fico Gentille but I am no expert.

Hello everyone just some picks  of figs  I picked this morning from the tree I saved from NJ. I went back and spoke to some older neighbors and they said the owners of the tree said they smuggled it over from Italy many years ago of course the tree and owners were no longer there because the house had burned down

Hi Just looked at the leaves some are like a clover with 5 points. This is also  a young tree I am surprised it fruited I think as it matures it probably look different. as for the source I got it in a trade with another member
 Hope that helps

Hey Cathy
 Ask if he grows them  here with success. if so they  probably do not need a wasp to pollinate.  I think when you ask  them about wasps they get confussed.  I am also Greek so if you need help with translating let me know
