  • Smith 2021

    Here’s the first smith I’ve ever tried. I wish I had an a abundant of them because it really was a good berry fig. The taste resembled a raspberry flavour with a light jammy crunch. Really looking forward to growing this next year and hope to get lots of figs.

        Looks and sounds amazing, it’s a great feeling when you ripen the your first fig of a new variety.
        This one is on my wish list for sure.

          Nice!
          I always find the red interior with green skin so appetizing.

            Almost 30 grams that's impressive for such a young tree.

                  Wow! Looks great. Congratulations! I’m about a year behind you. Mine is first year and growing like crazy (which is great) but no figlets are popping yet and I think it’s getting too late in the season. That is awesome that you were able to get one already your first year!

                    I was able to try out both cuttings I rooted on the first year battaglia and smith thanks to TorontoJoe. I believe he gave me nice cuttings that was ready for new figlets to form.
