Productive tree. How cold tolerant is this variant? Thank you for photos.

You're welcome Bryan. This is an excellent variant and extremely rain tolerant. In past 5 years, non of the fruits on this variant has ever cracked or split due to rain. It only puts main crop here and they ripe late. And it isn't an easy rooter at all- hardwood or air layer. Air layers will take 2-3 months to root and sometimes they even fail to root while other air layers, on other plants root within 3-4 weeks.

Your tree is labeled correctly. Be more patient and the skin color will turn red.

Ryan,

Fruit displays the characteristics of LSU Red (sugar spots, size, shape and the neck of the fruit). It would of turned red if you had waited few more days. If possible, please post photos of the leaves.

You can purchase a 50 lb bag of Calcium Nitrate from Southern States or ACE for $5-7. I used the Calcium nitrate 4 seasons ago and end up burning few of the plants, so be cautions.

Hi Dave,

Had one few years ago but it never produced any fruits. End up discarding the plant.

Trees have been mulched too deeply around the trunk. Remove the mulch and inspect the trunk at the ground level. If you can see any griddling, possibly voles or gophers.
Also, There is some bark chewing in one the photos. Something is doing the dirty work under the mulch!

Again, plant creator is closer to you than Dave- lower shipping fee. Would be a better idea, before placing any bids, ask the seller if he would combined plants for shipment.

Any figs variants will do well in container with proper care. But the ones in ground, will always outperform the ones grown in container by miles. Live close to you and grow many variants in containers for years.

Plant created is in Mississippi, you're in Tennessee, which equals to lower cost in shipping fee. Dave is up in CT, it's obvious the shipping cost be higher!!! I've sold plants on Ebay as well, and I do agree with Dave not disturbing the roots by removing some of the potting soil or bare rooting the plant at this time of the year!!! Another thing- $12 or whatever price difference in shipping cost is nothing compare to growing figs, cost of materials and etc.... Just my thoughts.

Also, welcome to forum.

Rafed,

You have contributed so much to this forum, don't just walk away due to couple of members or the moderator.
It's my firm believe, that Jon should of took actions sooner instead of waiting till things get ugly then to only lock those specific threads. This is not the first time or the second time, has happened many many times during the years. This is what I believe- others are welcome to their opinions and beliefs.

Subject: How many ripe figs make a productive potted fig tree Replies: 60
Posted By: nkesh099 Views: 6,170
 
The larger the container, the higher the % of fruit production is. My oldest plants (5+ yrs) grown in 35-50 gallon containers. Each produce anywhere from 200-300 figs each season. About 1/6 of those figs will not rip, due to either the weather (cool Summer), or me removing them. Non of my plants that grown in 5-10 gallon containers, are as productive as the ones grown in larger containers.

Posted By: nkesh099 Views: 8,004
 
Best container sizes for me, are 30-45 gallon. The bigger the container, will yield to a higher percentage of crop production. Keep in mind, those big containers will weight a lot, so chose a container size depending on your strength.

Hungryjack,

I'm more man that you are. I don't post in an invisible mode like a coward. Don't brag about my collection or my knowledge in growing figs and fruit trees. Have helped lots of members with whatever they needed and I had. Have helped with few members to start their fig collection. What have you done? Nothing. But keep running your mouth. You think you are a tough guy? Come join the Marines.

Yes, I questioned the authenticity of your permit since the agent could not find it, and I also question your sanity. Please get some professional help hungryjackASS.

Hungryjack,

Not a detective at all. Needed to find out if your permit number was existed or not, and I was told by the USDA APHIS agent, it did not. If your permit is authentic (which I doubt), call the APHIS Office in Maryland tomorrow morning and see why it did not show in their date base.

Still stuck in invinsible mode? Now don't go and come back with a new user ID and account, we all know you too well.

Hungryjack,

I did contact the USDA-APHIS Office in Maryland. The Post Entry Permit number that you had provided was not registered with USDA. That is what the agent that I had a lengthy conversation, told me. Again, shame on you.

Come out of the 'invisible mode'. Your sentences are full of hyperboles, large fonts and colors, get over yourself. You ain't intimidating anyone here. And yes, it was you who created different accounts last year and earlier this year, to attack Bass and others, and when you were called out by a member of this forum who works in Internet security, you were gone for weeks. Maybe you were gone fishing or importing more figs.... What a joke.

If you have a 'Post Entery Import-Export Permit' take a photo of it and post it here. Post the name of your nursery as well.

100% agree with what Rafed said.

Hungryjack,

You are only hungry for drama. Just a few months ago you were posting under another made up name and account, rating about your BS, as always. We don't need you here.

By the way, since you have stated that you're an importer with proper papers and license, why don't you post your USDA Import and Exporting license number here? I remember three other members had asked you the same question last year and earlier this year, but you went MIA.
Shame on you.

Subject: dig up fig tree? Replies: 10
Posted By: nkesh099 Views: 1,711
 
I have taken out few mature fig trees out of the ground and moved them in other locationis of my property. You need to dig out a good sized root ball for trees that old, more than 3'. Dig the hole that it will be going in first, then dig the tree out and plant it right away in its new home (hole). For now, I would let it stay where it is for the reminder of this year and transplant it early Spring.

Whatever you do, try to dig out as much as rooting system as you can. Older trees usually do not take the transplanting too well. Don't accept the tree to put on lots of growth next year. It will take a season at least for it to adjust to its new environment (soil). Next season make sure to keep the soil around the root ball a little moist as well, and do not fertilize it too much.

Good luck.
