  • Moscatel Preto and Ponte Tresa

    So so good!

    Moscatel Preto is one of my earliest, it’s large, produces all season and is a more complex sugar type fig. I look forward to it each year. It also has great breba.

    Ponte Tresa is a top fig. Gorgeous, productive, strong berry flavor, full of honey.... oh yeah!

      Oh my word! You get me every time with those beautiful photos. *Sigh* I put PT in the ground this spring, so it's busy growing. No fruit this year.

        I will be curious how it does this winter in ground in 7B land. I was able to get a second PT up potted from a single node cutting. I had planned on attempting to put one in ground. I hope it works out great.

                  Seeing your tree. I realize how far my PT is from ripening. They haven’t hit that swell stage yet....😢

                  Halligan- I got kinda lucky this year. I bought the plant from Bass in May last year and I don't think it ever went dormant. I up potted the thing in probably September. Kinda just did nothing, didn't grow, didn't go dormant, but then in Spri g it started up. So I kinda got an early start to the season with it this year.

                I just checked and looks like you guys are having the higher humidity right now like we have been getting down here (our's has been a lot higher but its fluctuating in and out). Are you noticing any difference in ripening?

                  Everything is actually ripening well right now. The humidity is typical in the morning. It is hard to tell a difference since it has been many months since I have tried those from later in the year and those were mostly caprified as well.

                Nice figs!
                My MP was early and very productive last year. Unfortunately, I’m getting nothing this year since my tree was knocked back by “the big freeze”.

                    I just got a PT. Won’t likely get fruit this year but should get me some good fruit next year!

                    Im convinced that if you can get a tree to wake up around February / March in SoCal, you can be picking ripe fruit in July.

                      We don't have to do anything special at all here in So Cal. They naturally wake up at that time and I only use Osmocote Plus and I get stellar growth and massive yields of figs. I have been eating main crop for a month

                  • #14
                    That’s amazing. It’s odd that a few people in SoCal are saying they aren’t getting good figs. I guess If you’re super close to water you get a lot of overcast and it’s cooler. But you’re right, they usually wake up around that time.

                    Ive also been getting some main crop for a few weeks now. Some of my Panache is starting to swell right now!

                          Damn, I'm too impatient...still even though it's picked way too early this thing is super unique. Very sweet and a deep dark grapeish berry.
