I hate throwing that which is potentially useful away, and have done too much of it this year. Maybe not all will go to waste? The following are from trees which have for multiple years proven to be productive in my yard. While I will not deliver or ship, if anybody would like to visit in the near future, you'd be very welcome.

Hollier. A "honey" flavor profile, not much of a breba crop, a good main crop. Lots of cutting material.

Marseilles Black VS. Similar to a Black Mission, but ripens more consistently and tastes a little better (there is a Black Mission in my neighborhood). Did not take a lot of cuttings but can get more if somebody wants.

Negronne. Anybody who lives in visiting distance knows this one.

Ronde de Bordeaux. Smaller figs than Negronne, main crop only. The early years were good, not special, but this one has improved every year.

Not that they produce fruit, but I also have a bunch of baby tree collards that are about ready to be planted.

I finished trimming my figs last week, too, and resulted in plenty of cuttings of Desert King, Lattarula, Brown Turkey, and Hollier. As in the past, they were all given to ASN for distribution in their coming events [https://agrariansharing.net]. For those in the southern Willamette Valley, these free events are something you might not want to miss.
