  • Dolce Cuore breba.

    This one was almost perfect. The only breba on my tree this year due to the early frost we got back in October. It was a nice size, starting to crack. The color was bleeding through to the skin. Unfortunately I couldn’t taste much, not because of the fig, but because I’m still recovering from surgery on my nose. I know this was sweet and very syrupy. It was a little dense but juicy. I’ve got about 50 main crop on my tree, so I’m hoping they all ripen this year, but I’ll probably need to thin a few. I really love this variety. One of the first trees I got when I started and it performs really well for me.

    Note to self… nasal surgery during fig season is a bad idea.

      Looking good Eric! I'm hoping to sample some this year from my little tree you gifted me...it's not so little anymore. Thanks!!

      I know you couldn't taste it but what do you think is the taste profile? Honey, berry, sugar or all of the above?

        Probably all of the above to some degree Bry. I know the main crop I ripened last year had a slight pomegranate flavor to me. When it’s more ripe it’s certainly sweeter. I’d say probably honey/berry is the closest you can get.

        I'm excited to try it later in the summer. This year may turn out a really amazing fig harvest in the PNW!

        I agree! Could be a great year. Hopefully the smoke doesn’t become an issue.

      So not quite 3 months from perfect breba to ripening main crop without any season extension help from the greenhouse. Pretty awesome. I picked this one this morning, but had a few others over the last week or so. Finally remembered to get pics.

          It’s usually more pink. Ive found that with a couple trees this year. Maybe a fertilizer issue?

          The variety has been on my wish list for a while. Is the eye open or closed?
