Figs, figs, everywhere!


#821

I am really excited to try Green Michurinska. I just grafted it last week!


#822

Here’s the Adriatic JH.

I looked up pics you posted last year and only saw syrup in one fig eye?

How many years have you been growing Grosse Montsreuse de Lipari? And how many plants… in ground/containers? Along with the same questions for the other Vertes you’ve tried. And whether they were ripening at the same time in the same conditions. Thanks.


#823

That looks amazing!!


#824

Thanks, yeah hopefully it will take! In 100% DE.
It looks like a good season for me, at least everything is alive. Fig harvest should be decent.


#825

I’ve only got fruit from the Monstreuse one year. The tree was pretty mature when I got it. Atleast 6-7 years old. In a container still.
It ripened maybe about 15-20 figs last year. I believe most had nectar in them.

The SV is in a similar size container though much younger tree. I’d say the conditions were quite similar. I got way more fruit from the SV but they were small. More jammy and no nectar.

When you take outside so many pots, how do you train them to the sun? Will it burn the leaves if not introduced gradually?


#827

They stayed dormant in the shelter and woke up like any outdoor trees.


#828

When did you move them outside? Did they leaf out yet when you moved them out?

This year I moved mine out early at green tip. They have survived near freeze. I moved them back in a garage a couple of time when temp were below 30 F, just in case.


#829

Ah, I was under impression they opened the leaves still in shelter


#830

I move mine out when temps stay above 20-25. Here that is about March 15th . Otherwise they develop green tips too early. This way they adjust to the outside temps and come out of dormancy when it’s time to come out. Zero need for acclimation too.


#831

Good to know that you got your out at a colder temp than mine. How did yours do. Mine did not do anything for weeks and weeks.

They just started growing when we got some sun and it was warmer.


#832

I let mine stay in the garage, until they come out of dormancy
and start to leaf out. That’s way past the threat of any late freeze.
They don’t need any acclimation.


#833

This past week we had sevearl warm, sunny days. My figs started to really grow these paste two weeks after being outdoor since early April. So, getting them out early help them acclimate and avoid sunburn on leaves. Growing is not beneficial until the weather warms up. This is probably true for zone 6 and lower. Any of you in zone 7 or warmer have more sun and heat than us.

My Violet de Bordeaux has the most brebas, 17. Others have about 1-5 brebas.

A variegated fig leave on my CdD Rimada. I’ll keep an eye on this branch to see if it repeats.


#835

My container figs are just 3 or 4 varieties, not really crazy about them, my wife likes them but don’t eat too many either. Some neighbors loves them a lot. I only have, Smith, Negronne, Violette de Solies, Chicago H.

Quality, not quantity.


#837

I wish I was your neighbor! None of my neighbors, let alone anyone on the same block, grow anything edible from what I’ve seen.


#838

Here are my 4 figs that i planted last month.

So far they seem to do well. :slight_smile:

Dauphine

Desert King

Hardy Chicago

Ronde de Bourdeaux

Dalmatie, planted last year.


#839

You sure that last one isn’t a Ronde de Bourdeaux? Looks just like my three. Love that variety.


#840

Well it should be unless the nursery made a mistake. :wink:

They (https://www.feigenhof.at/feige-baeumchen-shop) also have the variety “Golden Riverside”.

I might buy that one if its in stock next time.
