At the end of the growing season in early January all
figs which had increased in size to any great extent
were pruned back.
Status by type of fig:
Brown Turkey: this old planting is a prolific producer
of large sweet fruit.
White Cadota: this second year plant produced a
limited number of fruit which were excellent fruits
with a full rasberry center and a very sweet taste.
The following plantings increased subtantially in size
(3'-5') and produced limited fruits which were taken
off to stimulate root growth:
The following planting still appear to be alive but
showed no substantial growth:
Violette de Bordeaux
(any fruits on these plantings were discarded to
enhance root growth)
The Vernino planting died.
We're expecting the following new cuttings:
Santa Cruz Dark
Violette de Bordeaux (second cutting)
A new planting of a Texas Everbearing, or as we
light-heartedly like to refer to it as our "Texas
Overbearing", appears to be doing very well.
We expect to fertilize with chicken manure at the
beginning of the rainly season in late April/early
We expect to submit our next report at the end of the
Rainy season in late September/early October.
