      Wasn't as sweet as I'd hoped but still super pleased.

        Congratulations on your very first fig that you grew yourself. That's a milestone. I would guess from looking at it, that it wasn't fully ripe. But don't be discouraged. They will continue to improve and get better as your tree matures.

          Looks like an english brown turkey breba which is to be expected. I'm also growing this variety. It had a couple brebas but the tree is young and they dropped. It actually has been kind of slow to adapt to in-ground growing but is looking good this season. It has a good main crop developing. I was also going to mention that it does seem like a relatively cold hardy variety so far from what I can tell (given we have had 2 mild winters in a row).

                Agree with 2AngelsMushrooms that it wasn't fully ripe, which could account for the disappointing sweetness. I'd guess that it needed at least 2 more days.
