Looks good Frank, congratulations! I tried to root mine also earlier in the year and it was reluctant and it stayed green so I tried to graft it after a few months but seems unsuccessful . Thanks for the pictures!

Love the deep red color on that. Just beautiful.. Maybe next year I will get some figs on mine. Gives me something to look forward to for sure.

Looks really good for a young tree! How is your Sals EL tree? This picture reminded me of an older post of it..

Of all this past spring's rooted cuttings, this is my most prolific grower. Has several figs on it already. Still green and growing though. Thanks for the preview Frank, hopefully, mine turn out as well.
