What are the pros? Took root quickly
What are the cons? bad marking of varieties
Came in great shape! Took very well in pots and put on about 7 inches of growth. Must keep them indoors in zone 6, though.

What are the pros? Beautiful tree.
What are the cons? What's to dislike?
I bought mine 25 years ago from Monticello. It died back to the ground every year, regardless of protection, until there was a La Nina winter. Once the secondary wood survived, the tree took off. Produced a small spring crop and a substantial fall crop. Pick once the stem of the fruit starts to sag under the weight, but be careful, hornets love them too. It is like eating liquid sugar. I puree it, freeze it for sorbet. The cold seems to bring out more flavor.
The 25 foot tree was cut back to the ground in 2010. It didn't like 3 feet of snow for 2 months, which is not normal for this area. (Neither did Lady Banks and a lot of other trees in my yard.) But it is now recovering. Waiting for another La Nina. Shouldn't there be one this coming winter?
I would not recommend this for anything colder than Zone 7.

What are the pros? Delicious, multiple harvests
What are the cons? None
I'm so excited to learn about this fig tree. I realize now that I have this variety, which I bought at a little Tennessee nursery years ago. But the white plastic label fell off. Everyone who has looked at the fruit has been perplexed. Mine has grown into a 12 -15 foot tree and produces delicious fruit. Unfortunately, the squirrels and birds agree. I have to cut it way back each year because it branches out and up and interferes with the telephone and cable lines coming in from the street. It's a fast grower and I probably shouldn't have planted it so close to the house, but I was told it would benefit from a more protected location. Thank you for carrying this variety - I'll be planting another one for sure!
