  • Perfect Italian honey breba

    Sorry. No knife on me but these were really awesome. There’s an older Italian honey tree at my college alma mater outside one of the buildings. I noticed it a few weeks ago and happened to be back out this way today and was able to pick a couple perfectly ripe brebas that were cracked and soft. Rarely have I picked one of these at this stage. It was almost pooling honey inside. This is making me rethink turning my nose up at honey figs.

        The main is also awesome. Perfect sweetness cut with the sour skin. One of the best figs I ever had was a perfect Italian Honey main.

          No matter what name is used the Lattarula, Italian Honey, Blanche, White Marseille......blah blah. It is an old historic fig that has always been loved/hated. Works for some locations and does poor in some. I think the sellers love the multiple names so they can sell people multiple trees, LOL! My Brown Turkey magically transmogrified into a White Marseilles like many Agristarts T/C figs it may take years to find out what you really have. All I have harvested so far is brebas, main crop looks to be a month away. My smaller tree sold as a Blanche still has not fruited after 3 years. Due to its history I have high expectations for this fig.

            Three years waiting for a fig! You are patient. I give two years max. If it doesn’t produce at least one in that time. I tell it to get the fuc outta here.

          Here is my white Marseille fig (breba). Slightly different in shade and coloring. My sources white Marseille is from a bonsai from France label as white Marseille. Subscribe to my YouTube and Instagram Forbiddenfruit.garden https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQU7Z9lKFZY&t=342s
