My fig tree made it through the winter this year without dying back! Can't wait for figs. The Paw Paws are native to this area - I've got a small grove of them in the woods.
I have a huge fig tree as well! It looks just awesome and needn't that much care! I think we'll be able to get figs just next year. By the way, you can try flv to mp4 converter http://convertflvtomp4.org/ on my site. I hope you will like it!
Beth - huh! I'm getting awfully curious to try this fruit.

Interesting, Beth! I wonder if the paw paws would make nice dehydrated snacks. Paw paw chips. I've never seen one around here.
Fig roots survive in zone 7 if in a protected area - they'll resprout but don't bear much. Fig branches sometimes survive (like this year) and bear a good crop! This was a free fig that I got when one of the seed companies had a free $10 coupon. Paw Paws are good - in small amounts for me (very sweet - almost too sweet). They've got big seeds. I've never found anything interesting to do with them (besides an attempt to make ice cream that was really awful - so sweet it'd make your hair curl!).
Wow, Beth! Never would have thought a fig would survive your winters! My mother had a fig tree growing up - in Los Angeles.
Are pawpaws good?
