I came across these videos while searching for a decent video on pruning blueberry. These fig videos by Lubera. Websites: http://www.lubera.co.uk/luberacouk/index.html (English) and http://www.lubera.com/shop/shop_de.html (German):

#80 How hardy are the fig trees of Lubera

#81 How to train young figs

#82 The fig variety Peretta

#83 The fig variety Morena

If nothing else, excellent location...the valley of the Alps, as a daily landscape.

Thanks Paully.

I didn't know of the existence of Lubera, Suttons, Peretta, or Morena. It would be nice to get an expanded description of the taste (juicier) similar to the description of size, color, and growth (more round, purple-brown, bush, tree, compact, etc.).

I took a quick look at Sutton's description of Morena: http://www.suttons.co.uk/Shop/Fruit+Trees+and+Bushes/Fig+Morena+230690.htm.

Thanks Paully.

Translated page: http://www.microsofttranslator.com/bv.aspx?ref=Internal&from=&to=en&a=http://www.lubera.com/shop/fruchtfeige-morena_produkt-de-184.html

It's nice to learn language "hands on", i.e., by knowing what someone is doing and hearing the language and "picking it up".

FEIGEN!!

More fig videos on that page but like you said, in German

In the first video he says once they get older and the wood is more hardened they don't need to be covered anymore in the cold. Has anyone found that to be the case? With thier trees?

Whether or not you would have to cover will depend on your climate zone. and maybe the variety of fig.

I would love to see more pictures of Morena.  Looks like BT on the outside, curious about the insides.

Both Peretta an Morena are Lubera's own varieties. Lubera is situated in Switzerland, in the Swiss part of the Rhine Valley.
The climate zone there is about 7.
I have Morena and Peretta in my garden. Morena survived two winters with light protection, Peretta one.
Both trees are still very young, but there are quite a few breba figs on their way. I' ll post pictures when they are ripe.
Have a great weekend, everyone.

Lilli,

I would like to see the ripe fruit too.
I have both the Peretta and Morena and am hoping I get fruit this year.
I also have the Rosetta, anything on that one?
