Went outside to get some sunshine and noticed one tree started leafing out. It's one of my Texas Everbearing. And yes, this tree is Texas Everbearing. If you look close, you will see one long breba. Celeste don't have breba and the leaf pattern of this fig is completely different. It's 58 degrees inside the greenhouse. This GH is dedicated to just citrus. I have 2 large Meyer Lemons plus kumquats. The ML in the background was hand pollinated in December. Now the other tree has blooms. The bees are swarming and pollinating the other tree. Spring is around the corner!

I love seeing all that green in February, Dennis. 
Not to get far off topic, but does that radiant heater work well for you?  I'm in the process of putting up my 6x8 greenhouse and have already purchased one of those heaters.  Digital display with a thermostat.

Yes, Frank. It works great. I have it connected to a thermocube. Once temps reach 39 degrees, the heater comes on. Citrus can't take temps below 40. I placed this tree inside because it got too cold outside and I knew this variety would burn. I'm glad I placed it indoors.

I covered my figs with leaves this year to avoid damage but I have noticed that some stores are putting there fruit trees including figs outside already in my area.  I noticed a large fig tree at Tractor Supply today outside with green leaves starting.  A greenhouse would be AWESOME!

My unconfirmed Texas Everbearing is awake as well. Celeste, TE & Conadria have all awoken. This was in January though.

Can you post some follow up pics, would love to see the progress / fig shape / leaf shape... I have an everbearing green fig I'm trying to identify.
The mother I took cuttings off of was over 30 years old and looks amazing.

Has three completely different leave types and very large figs. The pictures are about two weeks old.
