Temperate Fruit Discussion / Fig winter protection
« Last post by Plantinyum on September 29, 2022, 08:45:29 AM »
I have two inground figs, one of the hardier varieties that are in their second year inground. They are not small plants, i mean not starters or smth and jenerally went thru the last winter okay but heres the deal...
The one closer to the house had an additional prottection ,but  the one in the open yard had some tip die back due to the cold. I want to add some prottection to them so i do not get the frost bite on the tips. I noticed that the branches that did not had the tips die started to vegetate earlier in the spring, had more vigor in the sence that the leaves and fruit are bigger with shorter internodes. The fruit on those branches is also the earliest to ripen.
So what is the way to add some additional prottection to the plants, without wrapping them with hay or smth since they are too big for that...
Frost cloth? Tuying the branches and making some kind of a box to eliminate wind chill as a factor?
Thanks for any ideas !

I think that is the one I got from them. I should say I got about 6 and 1 survived. It is lanky, and fewer leaves than I expected. I'm in 9a. You should probably give it afternoon shade and keep it out of the wind. Might be doable. D
Brad, the guava is a fast grower. I will post a photo of the grafted branch tomorrow, looking good.

In ground Ichangensis Ivia, slow growing, still get flower buds in early autumn.

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Looking to buy your surplus fruit

If anyone has a sweet variety of changsha fruiting and have some to spare coming up, I'd like to purchase some of your fruit and have it shipped to my house.  It is a favorite citrus variety of mine .
I got my cuttings last week from Frank, thank you.
What exactly is Orange Cotrg? How long does it take from seed to fruit?

It is Cherry of the Rio Grande with orange skin. I have some of these from Marcos and they took about 2.5 years to fruit. They look very similar to CORG eugenia involcrata but the growth habit is quite different - less tree like, more bush like. Their trunks are much smaller than comparable CORGs I grew during the same time. They are a lot sweeter, but at the same time lack complexity. I need to try them again next year as you can't judge a plant on its first fruits. It is a keeper though.

I agree!
