I read somewhere (forgot to make of mental note of which site) that Tennessee Mountain is a selection from Celeste that was particularly fruitful & extra hardy. I guess my question is can you select for these kinds of things by using cuttings, wont a cutting of a cutting always be an exact clone?


can't remember the last day it rained

I spent a little time on the Web last night and found that Tennessee Mountain fig is a synonym (that is the same cultivar) as Blue Celeste, Celeste, Celeste Violette, Celetrial, Conant, Malta, Sugar Fig, and Violette. This information was garnered from the Auburn University "Fig Production Guide" ( 1145.html), a California Rare Fruit Growers fact sheet, and (if memory serves me right) a Web page put together by the NAFEX fig special interest group. So, the Tennessee Mountain Fig is readily available; you just have to buy it under one of these other cultivar names. -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn.
