  • Casa di Lazzaro - Mario #50

    Wow. Excellent fig. It is definitely earlier than any of my BM types and has a softer skin. Very rich berry flavor, pool of honey, meaty with a nice seed crunch. Definitely a winner.

    This is the first this year and there are 5-6 more that will be ready within the week.

    With all these pics and descriptions you are making hard for me to keep my varieties around 20. Lol
    Kevin, N. Ga 7b Cheers!

    Wishing all of you a bountiful harvest!

      I'm actually forgoing what I really want (that would have to live in pots) and looking for some that will do good in ground here.
      A few from the LSU line up, I have Imp Celeste, Gold, & Tiger. Not sure what all does good in the hot humid south.

      Well I have plans for 5 to go in ground this coming spring, Smith, WM#1, Imp Celeste, CH, & LSU Tiger.....Have room for a few more.
      Just need to figure out which ones.

      I couldn't imagine not liking figs....2 years or 25....Love'em. lol

      Nice. I thought it was similar to I258 and not a BM?

        It’s delicious, whatever it is. :-)

      My Figo Preto will probably ripen earlier than my #50.
      #50 is in its second leaf and FP is in its fourth leaf.
      Not a fair comparison.

        Any photos of the plants growth habit?
        Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree.

            Thank YOU!!! I will update later this season. It’s really starting to ripen a bunch of figs and they’re even better now
