	I grow over 80 varieties of figs here. Most of them are in
containers, but I have around 10 fig trees in ground. 
	The Brooklyn varieties are 2 cuttings were selected from an old
Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn. Those figs were there for at least 30
years, from what the neighbors their are telling me. They have never
been wrapped or protected in winter. So I named them Brooklyn White, and
Brooklyn Dark to tell them apart.  Brooklyn White has a nice honey like
flavor, and the size is pretty large. 
	Too much rain will spoil the figs for sure. Some fig varieties
will split immediatly after a rain fall , some are somwhat resistance.
	I have discriptions to the varieties I have on my website.

containers) in

be a challenge 
		to ripen them before the cold sets in here. Conadria is
still my
