It is one of the 2, no doubt

PM920, my interpretation of  the figs4fun forum is exactly as the name states, "figs4fun".. This site is populated with mostly uncommon common folks. We gather here for our enjoyment and to share our passion.  Jon has started the forum because of his passion and has invited us to share our passion with him. The main thrust here is to share information on our successes and failures so we can all learn together and share friendship. In that it been very successful. Jon has done a great job and as stated he has his varietal information and updates it as he gets new information. It might not be strictly scientific, but its works for most of us.

Maybe bob need to start a strictly scientific site to achieve what he seeks, nothing but facts and no fun guessing games.

  It was very sweet and  I added another pic trying to find more. I would ask but I no longer live there. That pic is the tree in upstate NY at its new home. I also will add it throws a lot of  new shoots from the bottom with roots.
