I am now offering two giveaways to "new" members of Southernfigsforum.   For this giveaway, there will be two winners who may choose from the following varieties:  Macool, Unknown Bronx (Deerhunter16 variety and possibly UNK Bronx AL), Longue D'Aout, Petite Negra, Unknown Italian (JD Puckett variety), Strawberry Verte (look at my posted pictures of this fig), Kadota, or Olympian.

I will not be offering my young Yellow Long Neck as the plant is surviving but not thriving at this time.   

Instead of offering winners a choice of adding an UNK Green Italian from the Chianti region, I will be offering winners an opportunity to add a Chicago Hardy or Petite Negra plant to their original choice.  My larger UNK Green Italian from the Chianti region seems to be dropping all it's figs, so it is likely a Smyra or San Pedro type and I want new members to grow figs not fig plants!!!

Rules:
1) Giveaways begin immediately and entries will be accepted until 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time, Saturday July 31st.
2) To qualify as a new member eligible for these giveaways, the member must have posted an introduction in the Welcome folder from March 22, 2021 until July 24, 2021 and have at least 5 posts on the forum.  New members with less than 5 posts ARE NOT ELIGIBLE, as I want to give away trees to active members, not to members only actively seeking free stuff.
3)  If you are interested in participating, simply post a reply in this thread indicating you want to be considered for entry in the random selection of two winners.   With your entry post you must also include a picture of the biggest fig on any of your current trees.
4) I will randomly select winner #1 on Sunday, August 1st.   Winner #1 can then select his/her winning tree from the list I provided.   After this first tree is chosen, I will randomly select winner #2 and this winner can then select a tree from the varieties which remain.
5) Both winners have the option of also having a Chicago Hardy or Petite Negra added to their winning tree at no charge.   The only impact is possibly an increase in shipping costs.
6) Winners agree to pay actual shipping charges.

Good luck to every qualifying new member.

Sorry Arturo.   We did not even get 10 new members to post welcome messages since March 22nd and nearly half of those who did post, only have one or two posts and can't be considered as "active" members.   No one seems to have responded to your Facebook post.   Sad, very sad.  I have to find another way to get the tree I set aside to you.

Good luck new members!!


That's unfortunate about the Chianti fig. If that's the case I may use mine for grafting onto.
Want: Any CDD, RDB, Smith, Red Lebanese

Thank you for sharing and I hope that when you have some ripe figs you can share what the inside looks like.
