Hi Miekal

I can see that you have many fig cuttings which I'm quite interested to have. Do you have anything at the moment for me to purchase?

TQ

James, where are you located? I'm interested what your earliest ripening figs are? I've been selling a lot of cuttings but this is my last weeks before it gets too cold to send them in the mail.

I'm in Kansas. Earliest ripeners here are Improved Celeste and the Mt. Etna varieties (Hardy Chicago, Marseilles Black VS, Gino's Black, Black Bethlehem, etc).

Are you saying that Mt Etna is a synonym for (Hardy Chicago, Marseilles Black VS, Gino's Black, Black Bethlehem, etc)? I've not heard that designation for Hardy Chicago before.

'Mt. Etna' is a group name for a number of very closely related figs that originated from the Mt. Etna region. Hardy Chicago is the most well-known of them.

Have you ever perused/joined the figs4fun forum or the ourfigs forum? Those are pretty great forums. They make it easy to become hooked on figs, though, so you might find yourself with 100+ varieties in a couple years if you're not careful

Yep, I'm on both of those groups. I have about 85 varieties now, trying to trial which varieties will ripen fruit in Wisconsin without a greenhouse. About 12 varieties of my total collection are solid ripeners so far, but a lot of my trees are younger and I think once they get a little older they might do a better job of ripening.

Here is are photos of my new fig tree (new to me). I was wondering if I should keep this one potted (I think I want a much larger pot). Or should I make four cuttings from this one and start new trees? This is not a cold hardy variety and I'll likely have them in a high tunnel after this winter. But, I'm new to fig trees and have no knowledge at all with these. Any advice about anything fig would be most welcome.

I would do both: take 4 cuttings (maybe ~7" long) to start 4 new plants and also up-pot the potted plant. No such thing as too many figs Plus it's fun to root and grow fig cuttings.

Figs do really well in pots, here's a fairly easy method to get good productivity each year:

Prune it (I'll talk about pruning in the next post), then overwinter someplace cold enough to make it go dormant but warm enough that it won't freeze too hard. A lot of folks use their garage, some use the crawl space under their house, some use a shed, etc.

In the spring, choose a spot outside in a nice sunny sheltered location. Loosen the dirt a bit, maybe turning it with a shovel, to make it easier for the fig's roots to grow down into the soil. Set the plant on the loosened dirt, and then mound up compost and mulch all around the pot so that the pots are about halfway 'buried'. This will result in the plant having enhanced access to nutrients and moisture, which means more and better from the fig tree and less work for you.

In the late fall, after some frosts have sent it into dormancy, prune it, dig it up (first severing the roots), and overwinter it again. Since you'll have to sever the roots, most people plug up the bottom holes of the pot and make extra holes around the bottom of the sides. A lot of folks just use 5 gallon buckets, and drill a dozen or so nice sized holes around the bottom of the sides, and none on the bottom.

You should get good results that method, but it'll take a bit of work.

The easiest thing to do would be to get one of the cold hardy Mt. Etna varieties (like Hardy Chicago or Marseilles Black VS), plant it 2' deep in the ground in a sunny sheltered location, and just leave it there year-round. They're pretty cold hardy, but even better, they have the ability to grow back from underground wood after being killed to the ground by a harsh winter and still ripen a nice crop before frost. Improved Celeste is another cold hardy variety that you should be able to get in-ground production from.
