I love candied dried figs and buy  "Roberts Calimyrna figs " every Christmas. tThey are a sticky candied dried fig. A small pack of about 10 figs will set you back about $6 Dollars. I would love to learn how to make them. Has anyone made candied dried figs or does anyone know a recipe for making them like Roberts Figs? I looked on the net and am not convinced that the recipes given would produce a fig like the Roberts Figs.

should I wrap my fig trees for the winter before the leaves drop? I live in New York City, zone 6 and the fig trees have not yet lost their leaves but the night time temperatures have dropped into the low 30s.  My trees are young  were planted from cuttings this year.

I am in zone 6b, is it too late to transplant my fig trees from pots to the ground? I started fig trees in cups last november and transplanted them into 2 gallon pots in the spring. they have grown to almost 3 feet tall. If it is too late, should I store them in the house or a garage and how should they be stored?
Thank you

I live in a suburb of New York City;zone 6B. I'd like to know if I should now plant my fig trees and protect them in the fall or should I take them inside for the winter.
I started them from cuttings actually last November and transplanted them to to 2 gallon pots in the spring. We had excellent weather and they grew exponentially. I even had tiny figs growing but they never grew to maturity.

Hi, I would like to know If my propagation cuttings continue to grow over the winter or will they go into dormancy. I live in New York city zone 7.  I started 10 cuttings from 2 different types of trees about 8 weeks ago using the wet paper towel/Plastic bag green house technique. Astonishingly, nine of them have sprouted roots up and down the cutting;some already have small leaves. I transfered them to Plastic cups with drainage holes and used a mix of abut 20% vermiculite and 80% Pearlite. I used another cup to form the roof of the green house.

I started several cuttings using the paper towel, plastic bag method a few weeks ago and some of the cuttings have developed roots as well as leaf stalks in the middle of the cuttings. I want to transfer cuttings to cups. what do I do with cutting that have side leaf stalks in the middle as well as roots.  Do I bury the leave stalks along with the roots?

The funny thing is that the roots are emerging from all over the sides of the cuttings; is that normal?

I really dont know what kind of figs they are. A friend gave them to me from his back yard; He really dosent know the veriety either. I am guessing that they are brown turkey figs because nurserys sell that tree in my area. When ripe they are a very dark purple color. The inside of the fruit is white with a pinkish red center.

 I am trying to propagate a fig tree from cuttings given to me by a friend. I have divided the cutting into 3 pieces and am using the damp paper towel/ plastic bag technique for propagating the fig cuttings. After 2 weeks I am already seeing roots starting from the sides of the cuttings. Will the roots continue to grow in the bag indoors from the winter through the Spring or does the cutting go dormant; I live in New York City and it is now September. Should I put the cutings in the refrigerator till Spring? How should I proceed?
Thank You.
