Anyone else started thier cuttings yet? I like the shape of the leaves and seems to have some vigor and very healthy. Started these 3/17. Pics were taken today 5/18... Also the white specs on them are just pollen.

Mine are the fastest growing cuttings of all that I've started this year.

Aaron,
   For me the Orangeburg Puple was the winner. All of the cutting were so strong and they are competing against each other. They are atleast a foot tall now. I have 2 UIYWs that are catch up. 2 of the NYACKs are very bushy with thin branches, but love the leaves on them. No luck with Sorrento. Lost them all. Will post some pic when I get a chance.

unk yellow greek AD are just a little faster than these. These are catching up quickly though.
Nyack and Orangeburg were very slow for me. just getting started really and Sorrento is slowest of all for me.
Its interesting how the same varieties grow differently for different people. I'm sure climate plays a part.

By the way, I lost close to 30 percent of the cuttings as I was learning along the way.

My Unk IY Westfield set figs which are now the furthest along of any maincrop in my collection-impressive.
Looking forward to updating this thread when they ripen...
