Here's my Betty#1, will show a lot of photos for Simon, then will remove it after he sees them.

Hey Kaz,

Thanks for the pictures! The Betty #1 looks great and at 28% Brix, that is a very sweet fig. I can send you the cuttings this week or next. I stopped collecting figs a couple years ago because my yard is too small and I have too many other projects going on but thanks for the offer on the Betty #1.

Kaz, where did the name Betty come from?

Seng, Iím in Mira Mesa too. Let me know if youíre looking for any of the varieties I have.

Simon

Simon, ok thanks. I will send you a message with my address.

I named the fig after the person who owns the property with all the wild fig trees. I can see at least 10-11 fig trees that are over 30-40 yrs old on the property but I still can't walk that normal with steady control, so I can't go into the trees to try and taste all the figs from them. I just spotted this fig ripe on the tree a few years ago when I started buying fig cuttings to collect.

Thanks for the information Kaz, I was wondering about the name Betty because that is also the name of Leo Manuelís wife.

Here is a picture of the White Algier

That White Algier looks good, that certainly has a very high brix. Thanks for the information.

I think the fig community usually name new found fig using the street or location of the fig tree.

Not for all of them, for example the figs found by Blue Malibu are;

Angelito
Exquisito
Honey Newton
Meteorito
Thermalito
Watermelon Wine
