  • Nerucciola d’Elba June 22

    I was just talking about this variety with Sod and I realized that I hadn’t posted about it yet!! I’m shirking my Fig-Tator duties!!!

    This was a full month ago. One of the very first main crop figs this year. It was tiny but mighty. Packed with flavor and gorgeous. Probably the best of the super early varieties I’ve tried and it is SUPER productive as well.

    That's a very pretty ( and tasty looking) one.

      Nice! Thanks for posting. My tree has been growing so wonky I’ve almost thrown in the towel on it to find a cleaner source. Have you noticed any FMV issues with yours? I’m hoping my tree will grow out of it, but it’s the worst looking plant I’m growing!!!

        I might have to hit you up for a cutting this winter so I can begin a new. Not sure what’s up with my tree.

        Hey man. Mine is kind of in the same boat. It seems to be fighting fmv pretty hard. I think the thin growth is definitely there though too. I figured that was due to fmv.

        I wouldn’t throw it out. I’m think NdE is just a slow grower. I’ll post a pic.

          My cutting rooted easily and is now about 3 ft tall. It's in its first leaf, but it has figs at every node. Loving this variety so far!

            That looks like an awesome tasting fig! How old is the tree? Have a first year rooted cutting wondering if it’ll fruit next year.
