  • Tc12 2021

    I tried my first fig from TC12 today. It had some damage from a bird, so I picked it a little early in order to salvage some of it. It wasn't my favorite, but I will keep trying this fruit as the season progresses; I'm sure it will improve as additional fruit ripen. This tree got a headstart, so the mid-July ripening date isn't typical for this region.

      There wasn’t much flavor. This is the first fig off the tree and was unusually early, so I think it will improve later in the season. Still, I often have trouble ripening the larger figs so maybe not.

      Hopefully, it does better for you as it matures.

    I have had some first figs off trees that were horrible.
    My first I258 was terrible. I might have picked it too early and it never properly ripened.
    I want to see a fig from your tree as it gets older.
    Please update this post as you get more figs.

      Yeah I’m just excited to actually get some figs to ripen! I’ll try to post a better update later.

    I got another fig off my TC12 tree. It had some unique flavors so I'm not sure if that is typical for this variety or not. More testing required...

      That interior color and dripping watery juice of that second fig are signs of fermentation/rotting. It should have smelled and tasted sour as well.

      Fig honey is thicker and more gelatinous...It shouldn't be so watery.

        You are probably right. It still tasted good so maybe it just wasn’t quite to the point of souring. I’ll have to keep trying to ripen this one properly

      I finally got a TC12 fig that seemed ripe. Mediocre taste--maybe it will improve later.

        Sounds like you really liked Dalmatie and Algerian Chetoui. I had a Stella but I sure would be interested in the Algerian Chetoui. Looks good Pete.
