ficus carica var. colar

I mentioned my latest fig fiasco the other day. There were actually 4 figs in the pack, and I'd tried the sink-test with only one of them. They were going mouldy, so in for a penny, in for a pound, I eviscerated the remaining figs and put the pulp and seeds in a large glass of warm water. Thousands of seeds, almost all floating. But, long story short, precisely 15 of them sank, and will be sown.

I'm going to get foraged figs in this hedgerow, come what may...
