    I got this tree from a local palestinian man who said it originates from his country. His mother tree was in ground and gigantic. Maybe 10 to 20 years old. The name means "acidic" in arabic.

    The first few figs split in the rain we had been having. This one was starting to wrinkle on the tree.

    I need to pick more of these to form a judgement. And at different ripening stages. It is way too premature to say I like this or don't like this.

    I didn't really get any flavor off of this one. The only impression I got was "sweet". My only guess is that the tree has defoliated quite a bit, and hasn't grown since a month. The spider mites really stunted it, before I was able to get rid of them. I need to fertilize this tree heavily.

        Since there's not many photos out there of this variety, here's another one that looks a little different. Maybe this variety becomes acidic (like its name) when caprified (as I've seen mentioned here how some figs work). I also forgot to mention this variety produces breba (these photos are not breba).

          I’ve been curious about this variety. Which season would you say it is?

            This year it got a head start, as all my trees woke up early in the garage. It is ripening at the same time as my other local unknown varieties. So my guess is that it is early season variety or early to mid season? Perhaps late August if it was grown in-ground? I'm just making an educated guess.

          Can you post leaf pics? Mine seem to be pretty distinctive.

            I can post some later. You're right they are distinctive. Palmata type leaves.

            Mine are like that too. I’m glad to see someone else growing this with some success. I didn’t realize it had a breba crop. I picked it up relatively cheap last year as cuttings because it was labeled early. I’m hoping that proves true.

          I have a one year tree that is setting it's first fruits. They are starting to soften a bit and get some color.

            Beautiful tree. Please post pics when they're ripe and give us your description of the taste. My tree took too much damage from spider mites. That and also I'm terrible at describing taste.

          ieatfigs Well, it's producing it's first ever figs, so they probably won't have much flavor...that's usually how it goes. If they turn out decent, I'll post some photos.
