      My Battaglia is loaded too, but figs are far from your fig. The one fig in your hand. Let me/us know what it tastes like and add a picture to your thread. 😉👍🏻

        The funny thing is the tree is about 10” inches tall with only 2 figs. I’ll definitely keep you posted. Looks like it will be ready in any coming day.

          Just ate a 70g breba too. Was a nice thick rich treat the wife enjoyed. Not watery like some green honey types can be

            This is an amazing fig, Im glad I got one a few years ago.
            Try to not over water it.

              Yes they do get big. Do not over water it. In fact just before they ripen cut back on watering . And do not pick it early. Let it sag or almost fall off. The flavor is very differant from almost ripe to perfect ripe.

                  Some figs take a really long hang time. Dont follow me and pick it too early!!LOL. let that puppy crack at the skin. I found one that fell off the tree and laying on the patio . It was slightly shriveled up. yet inside was a ruby red inside ,no spoilage . I tried eating it and it tasted 1000% better than picked off the tree. Flavor was unbeatable-unlike strawberry but more fruit punch.

                Battaglia is a delicious one. Mine taste like strawberries...sweet strawberries...it produces a lot of figs as well. It's a favorite for me!
