Figs in Northern Mississippi
« on: July 11, 2018, 10:35:10 PM »
Scouting out old fig trees can become a real adventure... I have located three possibly unique fig trees here in Northern Mississippi and will document the figs that they produce this year as to possible similarities to figs already known.  So sometime this year I will post more about these three fig trees and their fruit! One variety is known to have been brought by Italian immigrants from way back.  The best way to research this is to go to the land office and look for the oldest deed.  Anyway, like I said, the fun of finding new (old) varieties sometimes makes this an adventure!

Steve here


I think the hunt would be the best part and the stories behind the fig trees that or found in the
backwoods just makes you wish the old folks was steal around.


I wish you all the best in your adventure Ms Figgy! 8)

Yeah well I didn't even see you do dat.  I think this tree is over 200 years old but I'm looking for the record. Remember I told you their was Paul Harvey and the rest of the story on this tree but I will reveal this next year. And I can already see your face and see you saying oh my God. So watch out for people that are trying to manipulate part of this out of your hands it's not for sale.
