Got my cuttings as well and grafted them. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

Looks awesome! I'd be down, but alas, not in Cali.

I'd be willing to risk it if though if you'd be up for shipping it not too far away to me. No liability on your end if it doesn't make it. :)

Do you have any orange hog plum?

Personally, once I got my technique down (no air gaps, stretching the tape, layering correctly), I've had fantastic success with Parafilm tape. Factors like rain generally don't affect me as I'm in dry desert air, and moisture retention is extremely important for the entire scion.

Curious to try that Texas flagging tape once I run out of Parafilm though.

What I wouldn't give to be able to grow this in Vegas.

Skinner supposedly has a different flavor profile that's supposed to be a bit figgy, which caught my attention. She doesn't mention it there so I wonder if there's any truth to that?

One very interesting thing about the Contorted mulberry fruits is that it starts off with male flowers, then they finish, next it has the female flowers and fruits.

I have never seen that on any of my other mulberry varieties. Anyone else know of a mulberry that give male flowers first then the female flowers/fruits?

My grafted Kukoso (that I thought was Red Himalayan, surprise!) on WBM stock has male flowers closer to the graft point, and female flowers further away from it. Not sure if it's a hormonal thing that's different where the graft point is, but first time I've ever seen that.

Awwwwww...the one day I don't check the forums.... :(

If any others become available, please let me know!

What kind of winters do you get where you live?

I'm tempted, but I don't want to try it if low 30's murder it, and this is obviously not a "stay in a pot" tree for me to move around.

Interesting, Sangue e Latte grafts seem normal in Italy and in the rest of the Mediterranean, it's also a strong grower as a rootstock.

Kaz, how does Dmor9 compare to Red Himalayan please?

Would that mean Sangue e Latte is better used as rooted cuttings? Or importantly, that they can be rooted from cuttings?

he is very arrogant and thinks that he is the only one who has loquats. I was able to secure some cuttings from other sellers here who are humble and down to earth. Don't waste your time on him LOL.

Kaz is awesome and explicit in his rules for what he sells. Never had a bad experience with him.

Sign me up for seeds of these as well. Would like to try this in a big pot and keep it indoors in the winter.

Drought and Amazon are two words I would hope to never see in the same sentence.

Seedlings and cuttings aren't comparable when it comes to growth. Figs are also much more vigorous growers overall.

Plus there's also soil conditions, feeding, temperatures, light, poor seedling genetics, etc. that factor into it. 

Would love one! I have several passion fruit vines that are a couple years old and doing well here, and can use to cross pollinate.

All but one of the ones I got from fruitree have rooted and have one leaf growing. The other is still a viable cutting, so just waiting.

Planting one in the ground this week. We'll see how it does. I'll post a pic of the leaf/leaves once they're grown out.

Pro-tip, and to mirror what growinginphoenix said, when rooting figs, make sure you're doing it in a clear container. Personally, I use Solo cups. It takes all the guesswork out of "is it rooting or isn't it?", and also allows you to see how far along they are before they need to be up-potted.

Breaking buds is still something to excited about as it means the cutting is healthy and progressing, and generally roots will follow if they haven't already started.

Himalayan types tend to not be fans of rooting, which is a shame.

It can be done, but it's difficult with a low success rate.
They have but figured I could prep them.

How would you prep them? I donít think grafting mulberry is done after they push, you want to graft them while dormant/ swelling buds.

For anyone interested, I have a couple grafted trees available. PM me if interested.

Sent you a PM.

I have. Had one take out of about six.

But yeah, not ideal. I'm sure it lowers success rate.

While not ideal, you can trim the pushed buds and then toss them into your fridge for at least a few weeks to put them back into dormancy.

Also been on the hunt for this variety as well. Would love some scions Stomata.

If anyone has some seeds they're willing to sell, I'd like to buy some from you so I can experiment with in-ground seedling growth here.

Seems like a solution looking for a problem.
