Recently got a couple of cuttings from a gentleman in south carolina. Stated the tree was over 100 years old. Not much on the background of the fig. Calls it 44 Hardy

Thank you for sharing with us.  How big are the figs?   I read what you posted but what do you think about the taste of the fig?

Not sure yet. I only got four of the 10 cuttings to root. Got them very late this year. So I'm hoping to try it 2021. I'll definitely keep everyone posted. Wasn't sure if it was a similar fig and just has a different name or what not. I'm definitely excited to keep the fig variety going. And will  be sharing it with others!
If anyone knows the name to a similar fig that would help. Thank you!

I wanted to make a trip up to the Figgery, but the inventory was pretty much picked over by November and the varieties still available for (Removed Word), I already had.  I wanted a Hardy 44 too.  I am going to try to get up there in April.

James is a nice guy. Very nice selection of cuttings he sold me. He has us on a little mini group and everyone got their cuttings to root.

Yes, he is great. I talk to James every so often through FB, his group too, to get advice. When I learned that the inventory was not worth the 4 hour trip, he gave me a virtual tour of his place.  Now how many people will take the time to do that? lol
