Sorry Andy, All have been eaten, though I have frozen a few and intend to make something with them for Roger & Brenda's Christmas in July.

Hi Doug, Yes I would love the tulsi plant, and wouldn't mind a cuttting or 2 of the Condrias when you are cutting back in September, I have a few different varieties I can share with you they have all grown very well this year but would do much better with more rain..

Good to know, Doug.

Daleys put up new sales on their website on tuesdays. They only email or text if they dont sell the stock in a few days. The only way to get some stuff with limited supply is to check on tuesdays and get first dibs.

Those figs look great Dianne, I have some Condrias that are ripening up atm.  Did you still want a tulsi plant, I can drop one by if you do.

It seems that waiting for trees from Daley's is the usual thing to do. Sometimes I even forget I've put my name down for something and get a bit of a surprise when the email comes!

This one can be had to get so keep your eye out at Daley's, I had to wait quit a while for mine.. Black Figs are very high in Vitamins so that is an extra bonus.

Great to have such a late-fruiting variety of fig. Seems you can have figs for many months! That one's next on my list.

I am sure it will, it didn't really take take long about 3 years, now he just has to talk to his mates planted beside him and tell them we want a bumper crop next. I would love to make a Fig Liqueur, with whole Figs and then use the Figs in a Dessert.

Yummy, danish pastries, liquer figs and mascarpone, the ultimate in desserts.  You can always hang up a shingle and charge people for your yummy delights. 

Let's hope my piccone fig tree follows in the same way with abundance.
