  • Longue D'Aout Breba

    Really impressed with LdA this year. I think this is one of the must-haves for northeast growers. Just look at the size of these monsters! The pics don't really do them justice. Taste was excellent for a breba. Better than many main crop I've had and really looking forward to its main crop now. Highly recommend this one for new growers.

      Thanks! It had a firm bite. Meaty but with a nice amount of syrup within it. Not cakey like CDDs.

      No, those are two different figs pictured! There are about a half dozen more that'll be ready soon Not bad for a tree that was only about 18 inches tall.

    Mine was water logged from all the rain we have had. Flavor was good but diluted.

      This one is in-ground. I've noticed that once they mature a bit, split prone varieties in the ground have less of a tendency to split compared to when in pots. Hope yours perform a bit better.

        I'll post a picture of the giant one still hanging on the tree. It's still growing! Hopefully no animals get to it first.

        I planted this one in the ground last spring. The person I received it from had it for at least 2 seasons, but not exactly sure how old. My guess is 4 years total, give or take.

      Keep the pics coming.

            Nice LdA breba. I find that allowing these giants to ripen real well really brings out the flavor of this fig. The taste of the main crop is better IMO.
