November 09, 2015, *Author for correspondence. Once the figs appear, apply liquid tomato fertiliser every two to three weeks during the growing season, until they start to ripen. (2009) and Ohland et al. The 'Colo de Dama' cultivar had the highest seedling yield (77%), followed by the 'Lemon' cultivar (60.5%), calculated by the average number of nodes rooted and sprouted simultaneously per cutting. This video is unavailable. In general, the propagation method through woody cuttings showed superior rooting results in relation to the other methods used. Indian Forester130(3), 318-322. [ Links ], Ohland, T., Pio, R., Chagas, E. A., Barbosa, W., Dalastra, I. M., & Kotz, T. E. (2009b). [ Links ], Entelmann, F. A., Scarpare Filho, J. The fig tree was first introduced to the Americas in 1575 by Spanish explorers in Florida. In this context, the adoption of alternative methods for vegetative propagation from fig tree cuttings (using other stem cuttings), such as layering (Pio et al., 2007; Daneluz et al., 2009), nodal segments (Pauletti, Barbosa, Chagas, & Kotz, 2010), hardwood cuttings of the apical portion of the branches (Ohland et al., 2009a), herbaceous cuttings originating from sprout removal (Pio et al., 2005), and herbaceous cuttings obtained during the growing season (Nogueira, Chalfun, Dutra, & Villa, 2007) could provide high rooting in cuttings that have low rooting when propagated by the current method of hardwood cuttings. In the experiment of rooting cuttings by layering, air layering was performed in the middle portion of woody branches with an average length of 150 cm at the end of April, following the methodology of Daneluz et al. Pine bark substrate and the concentration of 1000 mg L-1 IBA provided the best rooting results from air layering. In a practical sense, this means that adoption of the nodal technique for rooting quadruples the seedling yield for the 'Colo de Dama' cultivar and triples seedling yield for the 'Lemon' cultivar. My other fig, forgot the cultivar, is 15' high and around. WHITE GENOA Grows well in cooler areas, yellow green skin and a softer taste than many figs. [ Links ], Pio, R., Ramos, J. D., Chalfun, N. N. J., Gontijo, T. C. A., Mendonça, V., Carrijo, E. P., & Chagas, E. A. The cultivars used were 'Brunswick', 'Calabacita', 'Negro de Bursa', 'Mini Figo', 'Lampa Preta', 'Lemon', 'Troiano',' Nazaré', 'Três num Prato', 'Princesa', 'Colo de Dama', 'Montes', 'Bêbera Branca', 'Pingo de Mel', and 'Roxo de Valinhos'. A. Rooting of stem segments from fig tree cultivars, Enraizamento de segmentos caulinares de cultivares de figueira. O Brasil, apesar de ser o maior produtor de figo do Hemisfério Sul, na sua maioria utiliza somente uma cultivar, a Roxo de Valinhos. The cuttings were standardized at 10 cm length, preserving only two leaves and removing the apical bud. Mealybug infestation and ostiole-end splitting are major limitations to fig cultivation in Malaysia. Desert King has some resistance against the wind and in very cold, rainy and windy Springs, its brebas usually resist while other fig cultivars drop most of their fruits. Ficus carica is a gynodioecious, deciduous tree or large shrub that grows up to 7–10 metres (23–33 ft) tall, with smooth white bark. [ Links ], Han, H., Zhang, S., & Sun, X. The cultivars Colar, Florancha, Tío Antonio y Gobernador were morphologically and chemically analysed. (2010), who also noted reduction in sprout emergence when working with segmented cuttings from the 'Roxo de Valinhos' cultivar. Mulch the soil around the trees to conserve moisture. Most fig trees, if they are planted in optimal conditions, spread their roots far and wide and sometimes the roots can choke out other plants and can damage sidewalks, driveways and other objects in their paths. A., Entelmann, F. A., Scarpare Filho, J. Percentage of sprouting, rooting and number of roots per cutting in herbaceous cuttings by the sprout removal from diferentes cultivars of fig tree. Figs thrive in dry, warm climates. To carry out the experiments, stem cuttings were collected from four-year-old fig trees of 15 fig cultivars arranged at a spacing of 2.5 x 1.5 m in an experimental area of the Federal University of Lavras. (1) Means followed by the same letter in the column do not differ by the Scott-Knott test (p ≤ 0.05). • ‘Banane’ and ‘Brown Turkey’ presented the highest yield with an excellent fruit weight. (2016) did not obtain good results of these variables with 'Três num Prato' and 'Pingo de Mel' cultivars.Comparing woody and herbaceous fig tree cuttings,Bisi et al. Problems Identifying Fig Varieties 3. Their best results exhibited a 77.46% rooting rate for cuttings, showing that this method is also effective for producing seedlings of some fig tree cultivars, as also observed in this study. [ Links ], Şirin, U., Ertan, E., & Ertan, B. There are over 700 named varieties of fig trees, but many of them are of no use to home gardeners. [ Links ], Figueira, A. F., Berbara, R. L. L., & Pimentel, J. P. (2011). Bragantia69(4), 877-882. The trays were placed in an intermittent mist chamber at a temperature of 25 ± 5°C, average RH of 72%, and spraying time of 20 seconds at 10-minute intervals. Effects of auxin and misting on the rooting of herbaceous and hardwood cuttings from the fig tree. Calimyrna figs are large compared to other figs, and have greenish, slightly golden skin. Since the fig tree shows a high biodiversity, further research is needed regarding its pomological characterization. After 60 days, a single sprout per seedling was selected, and after an additional 60 days, the percentage of sprouting and the average length of sprouts were measured. The fig is a tree of small dimensions, 10 to 30 ft (3-9 m) high, with numerous spreading branches and a trunk rarely more than 7 in (17.5 cm) in diameter. Revista Brasileira de Agricultura Irrigada6(3), 176-183. Then, pine bark and moistened vermiculite (2:1) substrate was placed in the area treated with IBA and was wrapped with transparent plastic tied at both ends to prevent moisture loss. As cultivares diferem quanto ao potencial rizogênico. [ Links ], Karadeniz, T. (2003). Plant propagation: principles e practices (8th ed). The cultivars that stood out in this method were 'Brunswick', 'Calabacita', 'Colo de Dama', 'Lampa Preta', 'Mini Figo', 'Montes', 'Negro de Bursa' and 'Princesa'. In the experiment with herbaceous cuttings collected at the time of sprout removal, the 'Três num Prato' cultivar showed the best results in evaluations of the percentages of sprouted cuttings, rooting, and average number of roots (Table 4), in contrast with the results from hardwood cuttings of this cultivar. (2006). Boston, MA: Prentice Hall. [ Links ], Mars, M. (2003). This cultivar is interesting for very cold climate as it produces a heavy breba crop followed by main crop. [ Links ], Pio, R., Dall'Orto, F. A. C., Alvarenga, A. Enraizamento de estacas apicais de figueira 'Roxo de Valinhos' em função de época de coleta e AIB. Average percentage of node rooted per cuttings, average number of roots per cutting and per rooted node, average percentage of node sprouted per cutting, average number of sprout per cutting and yield of seedling in hardwood cuttings, from different cultivars of fig tree propagation by nodal segments. The root system is typically shallow and spreading, sometimes covering 50 ft (15 m) of ground, but in permeable soil some of the roots may descend to 20 ft (6 m). Table 1 Percentage of air layering callus, rooted and the average number of roots per air layering, percentage of sprouting and average length of sprouts from different cultivars of fig tree. B., Ferreira, T. T. S., Azevedo, B. M., & Gomes Filho, R. R. (2012). Palavras-chave: Ficus carica L.; alporquia; estacas herbáceas; propagação vegetativa; estacas lenhosas. Ciência e Agrotecnologia29(3), 604-609. The cultivars used were 'Brunswick', 'Calabacita', 'Negro de Bursa', 'Mini Figo', 'Lampa Preta', 'Lemon', 'Troiano',' Nazaré', 'Três num Prato', 'Princesa', 'Colo de Dama', 'Montes', 'Bêbera Branca', 'Pingo de … The common fig tree (Ficus carica) is the most popular species because its flowers do not require pollination to produce figs. A., Pio, R., Silva, S. R., & Souza, F. M. (2014). Os métodos de propagação utilizados foram: alporquia, estacas lenhosas, segmentos nodais, estacas herbáceas oriundas da desbrota e estacas herbáceas retiradas durante o período de vegetação. After 60 days, the herbaceous cuttings were removed to assess the percentage of sprouting and rooting and number of roots per cutting. Because of their stunning interiors, Calimyras are a great option just to cut up and serve as-is. Figs prefer full sun for best fruit production performance and are drought tolerant once established. In the experimental results of hardwood cuttings, there was great variation in sprout and root emergence in fig cultivars. • The cultivar ‘San Antonio’ was the earliest maturing cultivar. Table 3 Average percentage of node rooted per cuttings, average number of roots per cutting and per rooted node, average percentage of node sprouted per cutting, average number of sprout per cutting and yield of seedling in hardwood cuttings, from different cultivars of fig tree propagation by nodal segments. If a tree is notgetting enough water, the leaves will turn yellow and drop. [ Links ], Hartmann, H. T., Hudson, T., Kester, D. E., Dale, E. K., Davies Junior, F. T., & Geneve, R. L. (2011). Revista Brasileira de Fruticultura31(1), 273-279. Postal 3037, 37200-000, Lavras, Minas Gerais, Brazil. As cultivares utilizadas foram: 'Brunswick', 'Calabacita', 'Negro de Bursa', 'Mini Figo', 'Lampa Preta', 'Lemon', 'Troiano', ' Nazaré', 'Três num Prato', 'Princesa', 'Colo de Dama', 'Montes', 'Bêbara Branca', 'Pingo de Mel' e 'Roxo de Valinhos'. Fig cultivars grown for fruit in cool temperate regions develop parthenocarpic fruit - i.e. Five sequences of experiments were performed from April to November 2014. In the same period, the experiment of rooting of segmented hardwood cuttings was carried out, in which cuttings from the middle portion of the branches of all the fig cultivars were collected and standardized at 20 cm length and 12 mm diameter, with five nodes. Fertirrigação potássica na cultura da figueira no semiárido Cearence. This fig will produce without pollination, but may give two crops in the prescence of a c, Can produce two crops quite well in warm European, Less hardy than 'Michurinska 10' but planted in a sheltered position we have found the plant to survive our harshest winters here. Fig Tree & Co. designs fabrics & quilt, sewing, accessory patterns as well as other licensed products for the independent fabric & craft industry. Fig (Ficus carica L.) genetic resources and breeding. This was observed in the 'Lemon' cultivar, which showed a high incidence of callus layers without rooting, and low sprouting of the cuttings propagated by layering after transplant to plastic bags. Keywords: Ficus carica L.; air layering; herbaceous cuttings; vegetative propagation; woody cuttings. The callus and/or rooted air layers were transferred to 2.5 L plastic bags containing pine bark substrate. The cuttings were buried horizontally at a depth of five cm and remained fully immersed in a moist sand bed under nursery conditions with 50% brightness. Propagação do marmeleiro 'Japonês' por estaquia e alporquia realizadas em diferentes épocas. There are more than 700 named cultivars of common fig out there. All … The cultivars 'Bêbera Branca', 'Calabacita' and 'Três num Prato' showed rooting percentages superior to those found by Pio et al. The cuttings were buried to 2/3 of their length in plastic boxes filled with moist sand and placed in an intermittent mist chamber, with a spraying time of 60 seconds at 1-hour intervals. In the experiment using herbaceous cuttings obtained during the vegetative period, the 'Lampa Preta' and 'Lemon' cultivars stood out in the three evaluations conducted, with more than 22 roots per cutting, on average, rooting percentage above 92%, and sprouting of 100% (Table 2). BLACK GENOA A fast growing heavy cropping tree that produces large sweet purple skinned fruit. Callus formation impedes adventitious rhizogenesis. Fig cultivars - Balkan Ecology Project FIG - Ficus carica Ficus carica - ' Michurinska 10 ' Description - Possibly one of the hardiest figs in the world. [ Links ], Sanjay, S., Kumar, P., Mandal, A. K., & Ansari, S. A. The cultivars with a high percentage of rooting by the herbaceous cutting method were 'Bêbera Branca', 'Lampa Preta' and 'Lemon'. African Journal of Biotechnology8(3), 348-353. Acta Horticulturae, 605(1), 107-112. Watch Queue Queue. An increase in the number of roots per cutting contributes to the operation of transplanting cuttings in plastic bags, minimizing losses from possible root breakage in transplanting and, in addition, has a positive effect on development of the sprouting and root system (Ohland et al., 2009b). They have a … The propagation method has an influence on the rooting of stem segments of fig tree cultivars. The cuttings were treated with IBA at 2000 mg L-1 using a fine-bristle brush between the nodes of the cuttings, according to the methodology of Pauletti et al. The cuttings were standardized at 20 cm length and diameter of approximately 7 mm, without leaves, according to the method of Nogueira et al. The cultivars 'Brunswick', 'Nazareth' and 'Montes', which had high callus formation, did not root. Therefore, callus can inhibit the formation of adventitious roots in layering. Layering should be carried out in the middle portion of the branches, without the application of any wounds. The fig tree is usually propagated by hardwood cuttings that are collected from the basal and median portions of the branches at the time of winter pruning, undertaken during the period of dormancy (Karadeniz, 2003; Sousa et al., 2013). Propagação da figueira 'Roxo de Valinhos' por alporquia. Root emergence in 'Roxo de Valinhos' was similar to that found in the study of Daneluz et al. Ficus trees really benefit from quite a few different fungi being in the soil the tree is planted in. Characteristics of some of the best fig varieties are provided in the table … An excellent choice for the South as well as California. Results of New Zealand investigations are noted, eg. Estiolamento, incisão na base da estaca e uso de ácido indolbutírico na propagação da caramboleira por estacas lenhosas. Therefore, the aim of this study was to establish a propagation method that provides more successful rooting of stem segments of fig cultivars for the purpose of expanding the genetic base of the fig tree. appropriate tree species for marginal areas as Southeastern Spain. The air layers were made without any wounding, and 1.000 mg L-1 IBA was brushed on a two-cm portion of the branch to stimulate rooting. They have striking pink insides that are made more striking by the contrast with their exteriors. [ Links ], Singh, S., & Ansari, A. S. (2014). This study aimed to establish a propagation method that provides for more successful rooting of stem segments from fig cultivars for the purpose of expanding the genetic base of the fig tree. Enxertia em figueira 'Roxo de Valinhos' por borbulhia e garfagem. • For all cultivars, the main crop yield was higher than that of the breba crop. All the native fig trees of the American continent are hermaphrodites, as well as species like Indian banyan (F. benghalensis), weeping fig (F. benjamina), Indian rubber plant (F. elastica), fiddle-leaved fig (F. lyrata), Moreton Bay fig (F. macrophylla), Chinese banyan (F. microcarpa), sacred fig (F. religiosa) and sycamore fig (F. sycomorus). Scientia Agricola67(6), 633-638. Low rooting of hardwood cuttings may be related to factors intrinsic to the plant material, such as age of the tissue, time of collection of cuttings, and phytohormone concentration, or exogenous factors, such as the growing conditions of the cutting (Han, Zhang, & Sun, 2009). Black Portugal A huge black fig. (2010), assisting fig breeding programs in the introduction and large-scale multiplication of cuttings coming from other countries for diversification of fig trees. Since figs thrive in warm regions, long periods of cold weather limit growth, ergo fruit set and production, and a lengthy freeze will kill them. Ceratocystis canker and the incidence of nematodes are the main problems responsible for a major decline in growing areas in the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais (Figueira, Berbara, & Pimentel, 2011). A review on the molecular mechanism of plants rooting modulated by auxin. Desert gardeners may have to water more frequently. On the West Coast, in the area that eventually became the state of California, Spanish Franciscan missionaries introduced the cultivar ‘Mission’ to the area that in 1769 became the mission San Diego. Fig tree cultivars differ in rooting potential. However, the result found by the same authors for average number of roots was 94 roots per cutting, almost twice the number observed in this experiment.
