  • Alma 2021

    Alma- She’s ugly but she’s sweet!!!
    Tastes like brown sugar. Lots of honey.
    Despite a lot of rain, no splitting.
    Wonderful, productive fig for the South.

    Bellefleurs this is a fig I know well. It looks so good in your photo and am looking forward to mine ripening! Do you ever get breba? My in-ground Alma was loaded with breba but they fell off in late May or so. This variety also does well in the mid-Atlantic and is able to resist rain and insects better than most.

      Quite honestly I am not sure whether the tree produced any breba figs. It is certainly loaded ..my most prolific tree by FAR.

    Looks great! Got this one not too long ago, but I’ll have to wait until next year to get figs.

        I love that syrup I had good crop last year but this year I didn’t water my tree for 3 weeks and dropped most of the crop now just a few maybe about 20 fruits I will eat this year

            I’m dooling at those pics! I managed a couple of graft last autumn(fall) of Alma and can only pray we get a decent summer next year.

              Looks great!
              Honey and sugar figs are definitely underrated.

                I like it a lot but I prefer it’s “child” -hunt, because I really like honey berry figs

                    Photos look great! I have several cuttings rooted of this variety. I sold the mother plant locally in early spring.
