  • Plate O figs

    Today I picked some main crop figs. From top going clockwise ;Teramo Unk, LP 4000, Texas strawberry, Petite Negri, Sodus Sicilian, and center Cilegia Dolce.

    Standouts were Texas Strawberry for dense, rich, strawberry taste. LP 4000 for a delicious honeydew/brown sugar flavor, and Sodus for a refreshing and sharp fruitiness.

      Sounds good, thanks!! I have 2 Dolce Calderai AL's, both looking pretty good but I'm thinking it's best to wait a bit more before severing it.

      I wouldn't be surprised if they're all the same or bud sports. I had PN and Negronne side by side for 2 years and couldn't tell the difference.

      They were both good. But I ate them after Texas Strawberry which was so sweet it filled my tastebuds.

      I’d say Teramo was a good sugar fig with good texture and cigelia dolce was a Good berry fig with a little more acid flavor than rich. Neither were as good as LP 4000, Texas Strawberry, or Sodus. As far as depth of flavor.

    Texas Strawberry? Not sure I’ve heard of this one. Is it early?

      I’ve had Texas strawberry unknown for 3 years and I have yet to get it to ripen. It’s not early for me. No Adriatics are. This year it’s produced more but I gave it a headstart.

      Also to my eye it looks almost identical to strawberry verte, at least so far. I have them growing side by side.

      For me it’s earlier than SV, JHA I’ll check tree similarities when I get home.

        Your times coming! I may have figs, but my trees are so ugly from being beaten by the wind and sun🤣. Several only have a handful of leaves. I finely put white bags on them which really seemed to help the heat stress. But some of them look nasty, lol

      Very nice! They all look delicious! 😋

        Cilegia Dolce looks the most delicious, for me this is the ideal state for tasting, but waiting for this is a feat

          Agreed, that is ideal ripeness. It only lasted that long because I didn’t see it, lol.

          That’s a lot of patience!

          It’s hard to mess up sun and heat. Can’t take to much credit

          Sodus was definitely a fruity tasting fig with some tang, i couldn’t taste peach on it, yet I have a more to try and will keep you posted.
          Did your SS set figs this year?

          Not this year, I'll be happy with the growth it's putting on and look forward to next.
