Hi guys got hit with the fig bug like most of us here. Went 34 years without having a fresh one until my wife bought some at Trader Joe's. That led to me buying a black mission, panache, kadota, brown turkey and one unknown variety. What's some other varieties that are productive in my warm climate of north county San Diego?

VdB should definite be on your list...
Armstrong nurseries carry them along with a few other varieties you might not have...

Run. Seriously, all these fancy names will be here a year from now. If I had to start over I would by cheap cuttings and learn how to propagate and have them literally develop into plants. After you try and fail a few times you can then decide what works, is it worth the trouble and then pursue more expensive varieties. Good luck.
Propagating I have a handle on but transitioning from the humidity bin to developed plants is where I’m struggling and when you invest in expensive varieties and then toss them gets you in a tough spot.
