Janice Seed-Less Kadota Fig


#1

The Janice Seed-Less Kadota Fig is the most vigorous of my fig cultivars. I suppose this is not too surprising since it is a chance seedling of Kadota at a nursery a few miles from here.

As of today it’s 8 feet tall and pushing out drupes. I expect a harvest during our Fall of 200+ fruits.


#3

How much do you water your fig trees in relation to other fruit trees?


#4

Same as the pit fruits.


#5

12 feet high.


#6

Now 16’ high.

Today I picked two “early” figs that sprouted on new growth in the late spring. I estimate there’s another 250 figs on this tree that will ripen in the coming months.

Today I pruned back my Janice Seedless Kadota to 34". The longest of the whips I removed was 13 feet!


#8

Spring growth is coming out like gangbusters!

#10

The whips are back up to 13’ and the tree is loaded with fruit.

Today the furry ones and I cut down our Janice Seed-Less Kadota fig tree to make room for a Macadamia Nut tree. After removing all the branches I cut the stump down a bit further and treated it with glyphosate. But during the cutting process I selected some small whips – gouging out callous heels where I could – then placed them in a solution of water and seaweed extract for a couple hours. Afterwards I planted them in a perforated 5-gallon bucket in damp orchard soil. Come spring they’ll be ready to plant out at a local vocational school. :slight_smile:

Janet decided she’d rather have a Pecan … :astonished:
