Subject: Fico Bianco? Replies: 0
Posted By: Farmergene Views: 70
 
Growing in South New Jersey.
Do you think this is Fico Bianco?
Medium green fig with very light colored pulp. Quite sweet with some crunch. The skin is thick but not tough, the skin could be easily be 'peeled' by hand.

I'd be interested in getting some cuttings in the fall.
Especially the in-ground unknowns.
Looking forward to the list in November!

I think I know where these two unknowns are located in South Jersey. Two in-ground trees - one white and one red. Nancy is the name of the owner, hence 'White Nancy' and 'Red Nancy'.
I hope I get to taste the figs so I can report back to the forum...
Any of you guys have grown these 2 varieties?

I heard it is pronounced 'Long-doot'

Found this big 'shrub' in South Jersey today.
It looks very healthy and vigorous, yet the figs are very small. Kinda look like Improved Celeste but much smaller and with shorter 'neck'

Thank you!!

Subject: A fig I found, please help identify Replies: 1
Posted By: Farmergene Views: 143
 
Found this fig in South Jersey (Zone 7a), it grows in a shady spot. No winter protection, and by the look of it, it does not die completely to the ground since it has old wood on it.
Very prolific, almost all branches have figs.
Figs are green, the ripe ones were collected by the owner, so I don't have a photo of a ripe fig's pulp.
The figs are large and flattened in shape.

Any leads as to what this might be is greatly appreciated.

Thank you all for taking time to reply.

The figs are about 2.5 ft. (30 inches) away from the wall. I do not intend to grow them too big, I'll keep them pruned to about 4 feet so they are manageable to protect in the winter time.

Regarding the dye in the mulch, I'll read more about it, perhaps I will scrape everything off and put something more natural.

Thanks again!

I planted 6 figs close to my house. Is this NOT a good idea.
I was told that this will damage my foundation.
I would really appreciate any input.

These are a friend's figs planted as hedges. They do have beautiful leaves and they grow unprotected in Zone 7a.
Yes, I think the leaves are the ones considered as 'ice crystals'.
He haven't tried the fruit since they did not ripen on time last year. He hopes that some would ripen this year.

Hi. I'm looking to see if anybody has Florea that originated from the hardy tree in New Jersey.
Herman's (Vasile) friend grows the tree in ground in Beverly, NJ.
I would like to buy a couple of rooted plants if you have some extra plants to spare.
Thanks!

Thanks bigbadbill!
That's what I thought. I was thinking along the line of Negretta, VdB, Negrone kind of fig. Not like the one pictured in the label.
For $19.95, I'll keep it for now and see how it does in ground.

Hi. In new in the forum.
I found these figs at my local Whole Foods and they are labeled Black Spanish.
Has anybody had any experience with these figs.
I see that they've been sold at Whole Foods a few years ago.
Has anybody fruited them yet?
Would they be hardy in ground in Zone 7a (New Jersey)?
Thanks!
