Tree starts. Figs. Wild Plums. Apples.
Fig, Wild Plum, Apple, starts
Current status of mostly fig starts. These were cuttings starting in Jan and Feb, some from my trees at home and some from exchanges on gardenweb. Fig varieties Carini (New Jersey), Ronde de Bordeaus, Black Marseilles, LSU Champagne, LSU Tiger, Panachee, Smith, Hardy Chicago, Lattarula, King. The apples are two that I grafted at the Home Orchard Society grafting workshop. The apples are Spitzenberg and Sutton's Beauty. The plums are grown from seeds from a neighborhood wild plum tree.
