You are going to be the ruin of me.
First let me introduce myself. David here, I go by the handle of warrior (from "my" river back home in AL) on most of the forums I'm on and by my patrinymic (mcleod) on GW. I found GW while scheming and planning just what I am going to do on my .58 acres here in GA. I am a fruitnut and just knew I required apples, pears, peaches, grapes, muscadines, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, plus a fig or two.
Of the other fruits I am quite familiar having grown up around them but figs were always of the unknown variety. I just knew that there were differences and that some were better than others. I love a good fig but lacked the knowledge to select a good variety or two. So I began to read and read. I have read every page the GW FF. Imagine my amazement that even within the "named" varieties figs vary in quality but from the descriptions it seems that the search for the perfect fig is an ongoing quest for most of you. Care if I join in that quest?
Here's my thing, I set out to select the best two or three varieties for planting here but I learn that first I need to sample as many as I can (sampling figs, oh the horror of it ;) ) so I plan on obtaining cuttings and growing them out and see what I find out.
BTW, a thourough study of this site resulted in a list of 20 that have my interest.
