  • Vern’s brown turkey 2021

    So here’s my vern’s brown turkey. It had a early start back in beginning of April. Today I had my first ever ripened VBT. The fig was very sweet with a honey jammy flavour, the warmth of the fig just made it even better.

    Looks good, but could have probably used another week on the tree. Try leaving the next one on until it droops more and the neck starts to wrinkle.

      It was pretty ripened, very soft. Pulled it off and there was no sap. Not sure if the tree is still young but it was delicious 😋. I was going to leave it hanging a little longer but it looked like the eye was opening. I’ll keep that in mind thanks.

      Interesting as this doesn't look like my Vern's BT at all. I wasn't able to get any to ripen in my zone last season before the cold weather set in. Vern's BT on the left and Little Miss Figgy on the right.

      HuntforFigs I don’t think 🤔 it’s a vern’s possibly another type of brown turkey. I could be wrong but are you sure it’s a vern’s?

        Agreed. Have fruited my VBT the last two years and the fruit have always looked like OP’s on the inside (a bit more purple-brown blushing on the outside, but probably just down to our cool climate and VBT being a late midseason ripener).

            That's what it was labeled as from Northern Growers. Their other trees seem true to type, at least.
