Vancouver Brunswick Fig Tree
This is the first fig tree that I grew from a cutting. It was started during the winter of 2003-2004, from a 'found' pruning. The variety is tentatively identified as "Brunswick", which is also called "Dalmatian" and "Magnolia" and some other names. Since figs grow easily from cuttings, their names tend to morph as a tree's origin is forgotten and new trees are grown from local trees of unknown heritage.
This tree has delicious, large, figs. The first crop was about 1/2 dozen figs , main crop, last year (while in it's second 'leaf'). It has 2 breba now, and I'm starting to see suggestions of embryonic main crop - which I'm hoping will result in a bowl full of tasty fruit.
It is treated with the same soil amendments as the Petite Negri fig.
