  • Cardenillo fig

    Mother tree has grown in 3 gallons. Excellent fig, did not split in rains. I picked fruits little early because of squirrels but it still has a very good flavor. Thank you MarianM!

      Wow! Cardenillo is the best fig from BrianM! It has a full of honey inside and has a strong peach flavor. Soft and didn’t split in rains!

        Sounds like an excellent choice for the South.

      Does anybody have any background on this fig? Or point me to info on the net. I have a young tree I obtained in a trade.

        From Spain and from a big collector there. I think he has 400 varieties. My trees were both devoured by gophers but I re rooted them and put them in cages. The fig is a top variety

        My tree doesn't seem to like it if it doesn't get consistent watering. For the previous two years the figs have dropped if the tree is stressed even a little bit. Hopefully I'll be able to keep it happy so I can get some figs this year. If not, it's going to have to find a new home no matter how good it might be.
