Fig White Adriatic (Cutting) 9/10

Joek's Edible Fruits
Update: 2643 days 17hrs

Comments: -

Fruits progressively for 6-8 weeks with reliable large crop; plump green skin with bright red pulp. Grows profusely during spring/summer and fruits on new growth. Cut back easily from 3.5m to 2m every winter then I chop up and strike a couple of hundred cuttings to produce  new trees to sell or give away. Needs only 1 or 2 summer waterings and only one winter watering if a dry winter. No fertiliser, pesticides or other care required. I keep it cut small but can be left to grow large and will fruit just as well, but needs more water.

Fruit is best eaten fresh and given to neighbours - never enough left over to do any preserves. I expect it to fruit for at least the next 50 years.

I have 8 other varieties of fig, but this is one of my favourites.

Fig cuttings taken from a Karagullen Orchard in winter 2009. The orchardist labelled them: white, late, 2 fruit in season. Potted up to larger pots Dec31 2009. Lost a few white and late figs, but the 2-season much more reliable in this batch. I've now given most away and kept 1 of each in a 50L tub. Plan is to braid the trunks into one multi-variety fig tree

This was one of the varieties I used to stuff myself with when I was a child, at my Grand-parents house. I remember gnawing all the outer bits off, and saving the sweet and sticky interior for last (yes, a bit messy)! Finally, I have a plant of my own, and now my kids can enjoy them too!

Will be spending it's life in a pot for the time being, as roots can be invasive and I can't be bothered pruning roots too.

Growing well, i have planted this White Adriatic Fig at Sanctuary Point on the South Coast of NSW.  I actually chose this variety for its name as i had been holidaying in croatia along the adriatic coast and had seen wild figs growing everywhere! I have it planted in a sandy soil, it was a little slow establishing, but is now doing just fine!

White Adriatic Fig.  My fig had two fruit on it in the first year of its life in a pot in Canberra. I managed to eat one fig which was delicious but the birds got the other one! I look with anticipation this year for a little more fruit.

Kathy2's Edible Fruits
Update: 2112 days 21hrs

My white fig was a gift from a gorgeous little old man who brought it with him from Greece a LONG time ago when it was OK to do so. I can't be sure that it is an Adriatic fig but I can guess.


Spring 2010: I decided to try deep-rooting it when I repotted it. Seems to have worked really well. It has been slow to get re-growing but seems really happy once it settled down.


Autumn 2011: I let it fruit this season which admittedly restricted its growth but now with the colder weather it has lost all of its leaves but the fruit have not ripened. Looks like an alien tree!


Spring 2011: It seems to have rotted overwinter. No indication as to why. Prolly shouldn't have let it fruit theyear. Chris has promised me a new cutting - but have to wait til winter next year! :O(

Figbarron's Edible Fruits
Update: 226 days 19hrs

Comments: -

Purchased May last year from Diggers and arrived in a bad way. Started picking up in spring but it really accelerated growth in December as this variety loves hot weather. I pinched the terminal buds to change it from a single stem to a dual branched tree and in the process stimulated it to produce 3 figs. 1 fell off but the other 2 have gotten quite big. Its growing in a 300mm pot and i will update once the figs ripen on its taste and growth habit.

Update: 
Pinching the growth tips encourages branching and produces a lot of fruit on this variety. The fruit is quite sweet and large about 90-100g. Highly recommended
