Please allow me to introduce myself
« on: June 11, 2020, 09:38:08 AM »
Hello from north central Texas,

I bought my first fig tree online this spring, a Black Jack. Did a little research on Youtube to find out how to care for my new tree and discovered you can actually grow them from sticks! Fast forward to today and now I have over 30 varieties mostly grown from cuttings. I've had a pretty good success rate thanks in large part to the knowledgeable people here. Below is a list of what I have growing. Oh, I have never eaten a fresh fig, it's going to be either a Negronne or a Black Jack fig that I will get to eat this year. Hopefully.

Ronde de Bordeaux
Long Yellow
Brooklyn Dark
Violette de Bordeaux
Jurupa
Martins Black
LSU Scotts Black
Lattarula
Texas Everbearing
Dattato (Kadota)
LSU Purple
Pastillier
Bordissot Blanca Negra
Negronne
Black Jack
Texas Everbearing
Brown Turkey
Cherry Bourbon
Chicago Hardy
Olympian
Lattarula
Desert King
Beers Black
Kadato
Magnolia
Black mission
Conadria
Chicago Hardy
Strawberry Verte
Sangue Dolce
CDDB

Welcome! Nice looking trees! Keep an eye on the soil in those fabric pots, those tend to dry out quicker than other pots in our Texas heat, but looks like you're doing a great job so far.
From Austin, TX 8B. Super excited about figs!

I had my first Black Jack fig last year and really, really liked it.  This year it is producing more figs than last and I cannot wait to pick them.  I already have a cover on it already so the wildlife doesn't beat me to them. lol
