It seems like, a system has been established and future offerings should go smoother.

In the end if I get my trees, I'll be okay having been the test dummies in helping James get his system down.

Actually I take that back. There's too much similarity to not be RLatte. The leaves are young I looked at mine and it is similar.

Honestly those leaves don't look like Rlatte. Even though it does consistently throw two leaf shapes. However, itis young and leaf shape can change but my gut tells me otherwise

English version and it looks very likely to be Cuitat. However I would reach out to MP for his opinion, heck he may even know about that tree

Subject: Fig Id....Grise? Replies: 6
Posted By: brianm Views: 187
 
There is a possibility of it being Col de Dame "Cuitat". Obviously I'm guessing but looks similar and the leaf shape you have is Col de Dame. I would send this picture to Montserrat Pons he may know of this tree.

Grasshopper they are only in some areas here in the US like Ed said. Now, Sid Hansen has a big operation growing figs in Hawaii and he doesn't have the wasp for a fact. Maybe there is a select little micro climate that has been produced.

White Adriatic typically has thumbs but not always. It is a pretty early variety here in Fresno. White Genoa has a similar leaf but without thumbs and serrated edges. The bottom is white genoa

Pete your photos are awesome. Do you happen to have CDD B/N? If so do you have a picture with different color figs that are ripe on the same branch?
