      Sayerville. With an A.

      Looks nice. I never had a large fig so I am looking forward to some this year or next. Might have to start considering the local U. varieties.

      Actually, way back when I got it, it was labelled "Syreville". It stuck. I never confirmed the correction with Aaron.

      It’s amazing to me that you are so far north and yet you already have ripe figs!

          Early start and feed them so they're fat and happy. I also speak to them in Italian.... but that's mostly threats

              That's what I call a holdover main. More often than not they don't take. But sometimes you get lucky. And when it happens they have a really big head start

              Oh that's cool! I read somewhere that they won't ripen and that they should be pulled off before dormancy. I'm going to try this. Do you leave all unripe mains on during dormancy or just select ones? Any tips for getting them to remain viable and ripen?

              Actually it’s more of an accident when I do leave them on. Some growers have had problems with mold when leaving them on. Also, of the ones that are left on very few continue to grow when the tree wakes back up. At least this is my experience

            Thats main crop?

              I think I have 2 or 3 others that will be ripening mains in the next week.
