I know there are passionate fig-lovers in nafex... I could use 
some variety advice.  I am pretty sure I can grow figs here 
(someone gave me a bunch of delicious local green figs this 
past fall), but I don't know if I should put in a PNW-type or a 
California-type; we are much drier and hotter (weeks with highs 
over 100) than the rest of the PNW; though we technically aren't 
in California, we're just a few miles off and sunset zone 7 is 
mostly in northern California. 

Several of the PNW-recommended figs, like Osborne and Brown 
Turkey, say "best fresh", but I'd want something I can dry as 
well as eat fresh.

Also - unrelated to figs - I'd never heard of the 
fruit "Prinsepia sinensis" that's in One Green World's new 
catalog.  Any good?
