Satellitehead - Congrats on your fig finds. I've never seen any fig trees around Nashville.
I have only seen one fig tree in Georgia but I don't spend much time down there.
My great uncle lives 1.5 hours northwest of Atlanta. When I was a kid my family would pick figs from his tree. I started asking my uncle about the tree last year and he has no idea what it is. The tree was planted on the farm by someone else 60+ years ago.
I rode over there to check this tree out. It was neglected and had a lot of dead wood that needed to be pruned. The birds had gotten to the most ripe figs and the ones I tried were not ripe enough. I took a few cuttings home and one of them put out a leaf a week or so ago. I'm hoping with the use of some bird netting I can get some decent figs off the new family tree in a few years.
BTW I think this tree is a Brunswick but I'm not sure. The figs are about twice the size of a quarter and the ripe ones, with holes from the birds, were light brown in color. The inside of the figs is also a light brown color. I'm not sure why I didn't take a picture but I will next time.
I'm heading to Acworth in about two weeks. I wonder if I can turn up some fig finds around some of the old homesteads there?
