  • First ripe Galacia Negra


    This is a second year tree in a four gallon pot. We've had several days of hot sunny weather that helps with ripening figs. The rain chances increase this week. Looking at the interior of this fig you would think it has a strong berry flavor. It had no berry flavor for me. It had a sweet honey with hints of caramel flavor. The skin was slightly chewy. A good tasting fig. There are several more figs on the tree that should ripen in the next couple of days.

      Damn, sorry to hear that. I'll probably up pot this plant next season.

    One of the most beautiful figs around. Love it. From my experience, this is a slow-growing and slow to develop its true berry flavor. Caramel is def one of its signature flavors but the berry is late to develop.

      Good to know on the berry flavor. It was thick jammy goodness. I'm looking forward to the flavors of the figs as the trees age.

      One of them is just starting to have little figlets form.

      So I may get one this year if everything works out.

      However, I know that the first figs are almost never any good on any tree. The true flavors dont really show up for the first few years usually (for me anyways unless I stay on it and make conditions just right).

    This is a variety that gets alot better with maturity. If you can give the tree another 2-3 years its top notch. Congrats on your first one.

    Great looking fig! My tree is sloooow growing and stingy on the fruit set, so I almost culled it this spring. It finally put out a few main and a breba, so I put the ax away. Your post gives me reason to give it another chance
