As for language, I only speak English, and I'm not very good at that. My computers skills are even worse.
Welcome to the site, and I hope you will stay with the group. Everyone here is great and helpful.

Thank you very much : ) yes I understand, isint the san pedro figs type that do that ? But i have it more like on trial. I have many in pots also. The one here in pic do get fruits, the year it froze down i got fruits on first-year wood.

Here are some winter pic after a long and cold winter, where the trunk died.

22 dec 2009


and this pic below 2 March 2010, this winter it was not so much of snow and lowest -2,2F.



This is the worst damaged it has ever gotten, summer pic when recovered.
summer pic are from 28 aug 2010, its was very small this summer i thought it wouldn't survive the following winter.

The next winter was even colder 9,4F but a thich layer of snow so it had almost no die back and the summer came early that year date in picture ,, thanks

Flaxss listed degrees F, but in Europe they use a comma for the decimal point while we in the States use a period, that's why some of Flaxss' #s may look confusing.

Also, Flaxss, I'm glad you're here.  Now the guys from Chicago, Idaho and Canada will have to stop whining   ;)


The Desert King is growing nice when regrowing from roots. So It sure does do well in northern summers. Thank you Im glad to be here, but i mostly read because of the language barrier

Thank you, its interesting this when i don't know the exact name. Whatever it is I like it very much. Those i have tried outside this has been the best and the hardiest.

Its a marine climate so the summers are chilly and so are the winters, some time we get cold air from Russia. If the sea gets frozen between Sweden and Finland its gets cold.

Hardy Chicago its rare to found in north Europe, i haven't seen it. Desert King i have, and its doing mostly fine but does freeze to the ground in cold winters and haven't fruited yet.

I Would love to try Hardy Chicago. Its the most hardy fig? tasty?

Thank you, i have F also after C : ) I made i Bold so its more noticeably. Here are the coordinates for my location 56° 15′ 0″ N, 14° 4′ 0″ E it would land somewhere south from Churchill, Manitoba ? scary that i live that north. And figs does grow much further north then me in Sweden. Amazing it is. The lack of summer heat is a big disadvantaged, i think Churchill has warmer summer. 

Glad you like the photos. When i bought it, it was label ''Brown turkey''. But I read the topic below about this fig so Im not sure if its correct. I also have a place in northwest Sweden (zone 6) where i also grow figs, but these i protect in winter. Temps in winter can get down to -25c/-27c -20F/-16,6F. Leaf mulch and styrofoam has made them come thru ruff winters.

This in pic has never been protected. Has survived 5F without any damaged and no/little snow or anything els to insulate it.

Hello

I took some pictures of my fig today, planted in fall 2007 in usda zone 7, sweden (broby). Never protected. But it grows well considering the west Europe marine climate. Here in north west Europe the summer has been rainy and chilly, warmest day of the summer has been only +86F (+30C). I think its heat zone 1 or 2 here. But my fig has grown well, i have tried many figs but this one has been the one that has survived my winters, danish varieties haven't survived. Last night we had 37,4F/+3c.

Its fantastic how figs can thrive and survive in such a wide range of climates.

Here are some lows and highs my fig has experienced in its life time planted here.

Winter 06/07 -15C _ 5F

Winter 07/08 -10C/-12C _ 14F/ 10,4F

Winter 08/09-15C _5F

Winter 09/10-19C _ 2,2 F

Winter 10/11 -23C/-20C _ 9,4 F/-4F

Winter 11/12 -17C _ 1,4 F

Summer 2006 +33C _ 91,4 F

Summer 2010 +35 C/+36C _ 95 F/96,8
F

Summer 2011 +30 C / +31C _ 86
F/87,8F

Summer 2012 +30 C _ 86 F

Here are som pics
from today its still summer but fall is coming and first
frost in oct.


no ripe fruits this year.

I read on your website (great website) that you have Bornholm, I have some different varies of Bornholm. But i actually growing them in pots, i have tried planted in ground but haven't performed well at all.  It died in a mild winter but in the same location my brown turkey survived without damaged. Desert King is also a hardy fig that has survived winter low as -27c with mulch and snow but i doesn't get riped fruits.

What a great fig tree you have, have you tried it outside with non protection in winter? 
How many years have you had it ? 

I'm growing a brown turkey outside in south east Sweden in south-west location close to the house without winter protection, it survived last winter with only 10cm dieback, lowest was -23c on the north side. It gave last summer about 30 ripen figs. This winter it has been no winter damaged lowest -17c.

If you save the tip it will grow from there, if the tip is cut it will grow from a side node i think. Here is i side view; the tip has been pinched.

Here are one of my cuttings, I transplanted it in April and it has grown nice, sadly a ''heat accident'' happen to my cuttings, it got to hot (113F,45C) one day in my cold frame so some of the roots fried and the leafs fell off, this happen when i still had them in the plastic bottle, after that I transplanted them in new containers and they recovered with new roots and new leafs. Now they have grown slow because it has been chilly weather. But I'm glad that they are alive and is growing a least some.

Hello

First time showing photos of my fig that is working best and that i had in the ground longest (planted in the fall 2007). Its has survived both mild and cold winters. Last winter has been very bad and cold. the only protection has been snow cover and little mulch. The summer came very early this year and it has some nice fig fruits forming. hoping for a great harvest this year.

''History of my fig'', recent photos at the bottom.

My rooted cuttings are now outside in a closed cold frame, and are doing great so far, they have grown nicely and enjoying the warm weather. I haven't potted them up, i Think I will wait with it.

yes they where easy to root, i have not potted up mine yet. but the roots are grown good, maybe grown 1,5inch the last day. the rooted cuttings that are in clear plastic bottles a growing better then those that are in black containers.

my cuttings developed  syconium befor roots and leafs, but i broke them off.

He would be able to provide further info- He is around zone 6

If he grows it ( probably pot culture), it should be fine in zone 7.

My tree is grown outside & this winter we did see temp. going to -9*C. So far only slight damage to tips. I have 2 other LdA trees grown in pot(for friend), left outside with dirt protection up to mid way of pot & I did not see any damage apart from its tips.

Like Axier said, it is a quality variant. The breba ripens in Aug and main crop mostly around mid Oct. I think my friend had his tree in the greenhouse & it ripens earlier. Main crop is awesome tasting.


thank

I have zone 6, it got down to -25C in dec. I have here only two varieties in ground here brown turkey and desert king, the both got leaf mulching and came through with dead tips above snow level. At my other place its zone 7 (this winter -23C),  here i have also two variates i ground bornholm and brown turkey. Same outcome as above after the winter.

So maybe this will be a good candidate in ground also?

my climate is mild, so I can't opine about Longue d'Aout hardiness.
It is an excellent fig in my opinion.

Hello

I have recently bought a fig variety called 'Longue d'Aout ', I have read thats its hardy to -15C (5F).

Its there anyone here that have experience of this fig in colder climate/oceanic climate ?  (7 and colder). Does it ripe early in summer cool area?
 Is it a overall god fig ?

Maybe I will take some cuttings and try in ground also, but at first i will probably take it indoors in winter. 

Thanks

Merhaba

Geçenlerde Patlican denilen bir incir, bir Türk incir satın aldı.

Kimse bu konuda bir şey biliyor burada ? tahammül? Bu tozlaşma ihtiyacı var?
Bu bakım kolaydır?
Ben onun karanlık bir incir biliyorum.

resimler için teşekkürler, çok güzel bir incir ağacı arıyor

Google, ama size sormak sözlük google o çok iyi demek değildir çevirmek.
