Fig Tree Cuttings

A good friend was very kind to give me four cuttings from her fig trees. I am keeping them in containers for the time being, until roots form. When they are taller and more robust, I will transplant them directly into the ground in my back yard.

The close up is of one of the Kadota fig cuttings. The other shows the four cuttings: in the background  (shorter cuttings) are the Kadota; the other two are, according to my friend, from an unknown fig tree. I have sampled some of the figs from these trees and they are delicious! I am hopeful that these cuttings will take and will become trees.

Consumer Alert:  The milky liquid from this plant or its unripened fruits (also known as latex) may irritate skin: http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/fig.html
