I usually eat the fruits from this tree before I get my camera ready.  This one miraculously survived long enough to photograph. This is one awesome fig! In 9 months it has gown to 7 feet tall and has put out a ton of delicious figs in its first year. If I could compare it to anything, I'd say it is kind of like a MBVS on steroids.  It regularly produces some larger sized figs, and this one is definitely on the small side.  One of the best tasting figs in my collection.

Looks awesome and tasty Mario ! I was also kind of looking at that fig for my collection. Did you grow it from a cutting? Thanks for posting Navid's UDG !

Richie, it is!
Larsb, Yes from a cutting. I'd suggest it for anyone's collection. 
Tinyfish, The larger fruit are nice.  Its not a jumbo  variety, but it does put out some nice sized figs.

Navid mailed me a little Navid's Dark Greek about 6 months ago.  I was moving to Guatemala..  I couldn't take the whole tree through customs, but I got four little cuttings off of it, and two survived :)  Here's a picture of one (below).  I gave the remaining root ball/tree to one of my best friends and it is doing great as well.  My friend, Anthony, is starting a school of agriculture and missions in Arkansas and already has one acre of figs planted from my prior little fig nursery in Oklahoma.  Thanks Navid.

I got a tip cutting of Navid's Unknown Dark Greek in February this year from Harvey and it has some small greenbuds on it for a few months now but does not seem to want to break out and push leaves like some of the other cuttings. I have it in a tall 4x4 container with Parafilm over it outside. Hope it can do something this summer at least grow leaves.
