Need smyrna fig, have caprifig

    13 responses

JeremyM starts with ...
I’ve got a large caprifig growing in my backyard. No idea which variety, got it as a seedling from my mothers place. Originally thought it was a edible type but it’s obviously a caprifig. It even has the wasps coming out. It’s a nice shade tree so don’t want to remove it so I thought if I got a Smyrna I could at least get edible figs with the Smyrna.
Not having any luck sourcing a seedling, searched hi and low but the only link was to a discussion of figs in this forum. There was the SA Rare plant society but I’m not anywhere close to Adelaide ;)

If anyone wants cuttings happy to supply. I have around 35 different fruit trees.

That’s great, thanks! I didn’t know there was another type of Smyrna, which is nicer do you think? I’ve got room for both.

I thought of getting a common edible fig when I found out I had the caprifig. But had heard the Smyrna type were really nice. I grew up with mums fig in the backyard so wanted to try something different. Apparently the Smyrna dries very well so wanted to try that too.

I live on 86 acres so got room for a common fig too if necessary;)

How much? I’ve added most of my fruit trees to My Edibles list so if you want any cuttings in return just ask.

smyrna, needs wasp to ripen fruit
sanpedro, will ripen first crop
without the wasp and needs wasp
for second crop.
all, including common are as good as each other.
i can send you some calamyrna and
desert king, which is a sanpedro.
dont worry about cost, if you leave
your email, ill get in touch,

No problem, don’t worry about money. It’s not worth the hassle for a couple of bucks worth of postage.
My email is forum@jeremymearsdesign.com, you can email me your address. I’m doing some pruning and I’m going off the instructions here for the cuttings: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/fig-propagation.htm

I’m not heading into town til later next week so I’ll post then. Ok?

Replied to this days ago but nothing showed up?

No problem, not worth trying to organise payment for a bit of postage.
Just email me your address and I’ll send them up.
My email is forum@jeremymearsdesign.com

Used this link to prepare the cuttings, has a guide for planting them too:

hi ronica

you have an adam, it (is) a sanpedro,
it will have two crops, the 1st. will
fruit normally, for the 2nd crop to
ripen it will need a pollinator
for which you need a capri fig which
has the wasp living in the fruit.

i can send you cuttings but the delema
is there will be no wasps to do the pollinating unless you have another
established capri nearby that has the wasp.


just because someone has a capri doesnt
mean they house the wasp.
