FIGAHOLICS

Specializing in gourmet fresh figs and rare fig variety trees

 

The Correia family is a third generation California farm family.  We begin growing figs for our home use beginning about 15 years and in 2012 began greatly expanding our collection to evaluate the many varieties we had heard so much about.  By the summer of 2015 we had grown to approximately 300 varieties.

We post photos frequently during the growing season to our Facebook page.  Even if you do not have a Facebook page, you can view how our seasons progress by checking out the photos there.  Please check it out at www.facebook.com/Figaholics where we have hundreds of photos.  We also now have a Youtube channel where we've started with videos on grafting and rooting and will soon include virtual tours of our farm.

We sold cuttings of 185 fig varieties (see the list of varieties on our cuttings page) from late January 2016 until late March and are finished selling fig cuttings until January 2017.  Please check out the list of varieties sold for descriptions and links to Facebook photos previously posted for most of these varieties.  We will have actively growing trees of some varieties of fig later (trees are only shipped to U.S. addresses).  We will post updates to the cuttings page descriptions as well as our Facebook page when those are available.

On August 2, 2013, we began the planting of fig trees in our new orchard.

 

On August 28, 2013, the drip irrigation installation was completed and a few more trees were planted.  Although the trees were just started from cuttings six or seven months ago, we've picked quite a few figs from some of the new trees.  Next year will be much better, of course.

 

By the end of 2014 it was clear that three rows of 46 trees was not enough room for all of the fig varieties we had acquired.  On April 3, 2015, three more rows were added with 46 tree spaces in one row and 47 spaces in the other two.

 

As of August 24, 2015, we had planted 270 trees in the new orchard with only eight spaces still available.  We still have several trees in our original orchard location plus trees in pots.  We've not yet decided if we will remove some trees from this orchard or add a seventh row!
