Plint Nero
« on: December 02, 2019, 12:13:44 AM »
Lorusso and perhaps others advertised Plint Nero, which I have a tree of a rooted cutting.

Anyone heard or seen any fruiting ones of this variety or any Lorusso figs by a similar name or for that matter, have any of the Francesco Lorusso fig cuttings produced fruit like his descriptions ?

JD,

Are you saying they require a wasp for pollination?

I would contact WillisC in FL and see what he says.  No wasps there and his nursery carries this variety from what Google says. It couldn't hurt.

Rudy Google is great for a lot of information but Google has its limitations also. Their information comes from third-party sources again from third-party sources.

Rudy Southern figs forum is a third party source Google along with MSN and other spiders bot and read our pages or postings everyday and it collects this information and sends it to cloud which is held on there databases so when you search something this is what is retrieved.

So with a lot of information that one researches is dependent on somebody's or someone's opinion. ONE BIG EXAMPLE you have searched the internet on rooting information of cuttings.

So how many different ways did you research come up with I bet it was a bunch. These are different sources with different opinions or this is what works best for me none of these are written in stone the facts are you will have failures.

The facts are 90% of the u.s. does not have the Fig wasp. So if you have a variety of fig that needs to be pollinated it will not do you any good to have this variety outside of those areas because you will not get an edible fig off the tree.

Rudy we don't have the fig wasp here in Louisiana and we've grown this variety for several years in ground and in growing containers. We even held it in the greenhouse this year with the same results it drop the figs.

Miss figgy you can also p.m. Ross he is a member here and he will confirm these findings also me and him have had several discussions on this variety.

I understand Google has its limitations.  I only brought in somebody else's name because he offers it and may have some opinions of his own.  For all we know, they match yours.  Ross is on the West Coast and I don't know if he has the wasp.  BrianM offered this variety for (Removed Word) on figbid, but he is in CA and has the wasp.  Communicating with as many people about her plant will guide her as to her next step.  She may want to give it to somebody where it will do really well. 

When considering a variety to purchase, do the homework no matter what the hype. What grows well in one location, may not grow well in another.  That's why I have not even thought about adding the CDD varieties to my collection.

Rudy Ross doesn't live on the West Coast he lives on the upper east coast Pennsylvania and is a personal friend of mine.

And we really don't need to ask other people's opinion or Google anything because we do research Google researches us and this forum.

Which means we do the work we research different fig varieties and Google retrieve this information so when people are wanting to know the facts about a variety we will be in the top findings of search results.

Steve here,

If no one show pictures of the fig in there backyard in the U.S.A. then most likely you need the wasp.
if the only pictures or from outside the US then you can bet it needs the wasp 80% of the time.
Yes that guys name you said most of his figs need the wasp from what we tested in the last few years.

I hope this helps. we can't tell you the truth because if we say anything they start giving us trouble and start
bugging us and we have to waste time dealing with them like ant's and it gets us off our studies and breeding time.

Steve.

P.s. Thank You for Sharing your awesome fig cuttings lady.  Super


Well Steve I'm going to apologize to you now because we're going to get another round of hate mail. I'm grabbing my Bible and heading to the pulpit and the truth shall set you free
