As a fig newbie, there was nothing more frustrating to me (other than killing cuttings) than to buy the same variety over and over again, only because of different names. This is what got me started building a spreadsheet to track all of the different varieties. Eventually, that spreadsheet became the initial basis for the Fig Variety Database, the most effective tool for researching fig varieties.
Two years of research, experience and data entry is at your fingertips. Click -> HERE to go to the Fig Variety Database, enter the variety you are considering for purchase into the search field, click search and review the results. It’s that simple!
And there is so much more! I will work to bring you more pointers on how to use the Fig Variety Database. In the mean time, feel free to play around with the Fig Variety Database and find out just how POWERFUL this tool is.
