  • 5 Figs, Half a Kilogram 😲

    This year is full of mega brebas. Beat my personal record by ripening a 144g LdA. My U. Bonavita is pumping out some giants too. Had to share my excitement πŸ™‚

            I'll have tons of cuttings come late Fall. If I'm able to send them to Canada and you want some, let me know!

                  All biases aside, I do think it's a pretty good fig. Hope you get some giants soon!

                  Dang, those figs are larger than yellow squash. Do you guys have to support the tree limbs to keep them from breaking?

                    Luckily I haven't had to because the wood they were on is well lignified and fairly thick.

                        Thank you CaricaChris for the Bonavita. It's like Frank's Salerno with less splitting. Big too!! Hopefully I can bait the varmints into eating my turkey & not these monsters on every node.

                          They ain't the prettiest or most complex but gotta love the size and productivity of this one. Up here the mains ripen from late August all the way through 1st frost in November which is a nice extended harvest. Glad you like it!
