The closest so far on my Che fruit

I've had alot of hope for my che tree, but here goes another year with no ripe fruit to show.  This is about the closest I've come. Atleast it got some color.





The Fruit Critter back at it

I was sort of looking forward to my Fuyu persimmons but the fruit critter is back at it and obliterated my entire tree! Time for that trap






Bordisotte Negra Rimada Fig Cuttings

I'm extremely excited to get these Bordisotte Negra Rimada Fig cuttings. Super rare and pricey.

New varieties - Fig Trials for the next couple of years

I know I said I would buy any more figs but it's a bad addiction. Sometimes I forget how many figs I actually buy throughout the year.

New varieties that I bought in 2017 that I will trial for 2018 or whenever they bear fruit. Stay tuned for a lot more reviews.
