Fig Porn

Yeah, that's right, I said it. Fig Porn!

For the true fig lover out there, nothing is hotter than pictures of ripe figs. In full confession, I actually borrowed the expression from a member of the Figs4Fun forum. Here are a few pics of my Violette de Bordeaux and Celeste figs from my garden this morning. Keep your shirt on...

Fig porn.
Even raunchier fig porn.

Fig porn on a Sunday?! I'm gonna burn for this one.

Ahhhh, perfect. You made my day.

I can't wait till my little cuttings from this year start to produce fruit! Hopefully it will look as good as yours ...

Cheers!

Jenny and Erin, thanks for commenting.

Thad, hang it there. It usually takes two seasons before they start producing from cuttings. Some recommend pinching all figs until the third year, but that's hard to do when you just want to eat them.

Kev, keep at it. It's worth it!

Les, consider it done.

Dan, I know you do. You are a fig master!

Miss your posts! What's happening in your gardens? If you are interested, we're hosting a "Prop & Swap" propagation workshop at my little library down here in Pungo next Saturday from 1-3 PM. I'm doing the propagation talk and am bringing a lot of stuff from my place, including fig cuttings. Let me know if you can make it and I'll bring some cuttings especiall for you! - All the best, Sybil

Fig porn is right. :-) In Italian, almost all fruits end in -a, while their trees end in -o. As in mela, apple, melo, apple tree. A famous exception is the fig. One of the embarrassing mistakes made by foreigners living in Italy is to ask an Italian dinner host (or their green grocer) for a fica (slang for pussy!) instead of a fico (fig).
