You’d better let them get root bound and no pruning, I’ve had KB for about 5 years and have only gotten a few figs off of a stressed out little 3 gallon container tree, my inground tree grows fine but always freezes back and does not set fruit. I’ve got some in compost socks now that I’m hoping will be productive in a year or 3. Over 7ft. of growth on one the first year.
Thanks Alan, that doesn’t answer things for me though. The main point was that the one fig BB10 ripened was rounded, not elongated like KB… But Dan’s pictures of BB10 clearly show an elongated fig, in fact, appearance is not even up for debate with me since KB and BB10 look identical in pictures and the comparison was made almost instantly ~7 years ago when the post was first made. Saying that BB10 is 20x sweeter/better than KB seems impossible since KB was Gene Hosey’s favorite, and unfair unless both were treated the same (hard to do) and ripened at the same time. Aside from the money, I just don’t think I can take another duplicate, explaining the situation to my friends is already awkward.
