    Eric, are these all main crop?

      Yes. None have been caprified so far. These were all up against the wall. They’re 3-4 weeks ahead of the other trees.

        I’ve been picking RdB’s since July 11. I’ve picked over a dozen so far, plus several Chicago Hardy’s and an Olympian that was 100g. Olympian REALLY impresses me that it ripens 100g main crop mid-July. I wonder how an EBT would ripen in California?

          Those are looking good! So far we've had JH adriatic, LSU purple and three black madeira... all pretty good but the JH adriatic was my favorite - lots more coming.

        TheMillennialGardener Wow that is amazing! I have an Olympian with a few figs, my RDB was killed by my mother in law while on vacation I’ve got many other trees ripening soon so hopefully in a week I’ll be in fig heaven, all the hard work and spousal arguments will finally pay off

          Ah, the old vacation death. I lost one of my I-258's the same exact way. Luckily, I had two, and the one that survived is a beast. This is precisely why I'm trying to slowly move my trees in-ground and eliminate the container garden where they'll never dry out or be over-watered. If you have some land, moving them in-ground is the way to go.

          If you see them in the same order that I see them, the first is Grandes Plannes and then Smith
