      Loved it! This one was able to ripen and dry on the tree unlike the last 2. It was very concentrated compared to them. A lot of honey berry flavor

      Nicely ripened! Are these current year pictures? It, like it's other VdB relatives, is typically a late-ish variety and I see your in PA, which is why I ask.

      I culled my VdB type, Valle Negra, last winter due to lateness and had planned to add Negronne this year, but changed my mind after realizing to too, would be a late ripener.

        I’m near Philly bit just a little bit cooler. My VDB types started ripening the end of June this year. Main crop will probably start mid/end of August.

        You’re a little bit colder than me and generally bring your figs out pretty late from what I read which might delay the ripening. You could probably get a decent crop with a little shuffling in April/May.

        How did you manage that? Was it a hold over from last season, a massive head start, or perhaps indoor growing through the winter?

        my potted figs woke up in our garage around late February and I then moved then inside to a sun room until the after the last freeze in late April/early may. sometimes put them out in march or April if its a warm enough day, then bring them back inside for the night
