  • hative d'argenteuil 2021

    I grafted a cutting of hative d'argenteuil I received from Off the beaten path Nursery in Dec 2019 to my inground unknown fig tree. These are the first figs I have tasted. Nice juicy semi sweet berry profile with medium seed crunch. The recent rain might of water down the sweetness a bit.
    ​​​​Looking forward to future tastings.

        HDA might be one of the varieties that benefits from grafting,
        Clearly, you are having fantastic results!

          That is a nice looking fig for sure.
          I have several rooted cuttings that I hope will stay healthy and continue to grow.

            One of my favs so far this year. Just ate a super ripe one a minute ago. So good!

              I’m about to ripen your unknown honey.
              It has an awesome pale yellow waxy look. Super cool.

              Let me know how it turns out, I have a few on the tree iam waiting to ripen

            Hd'A is a must-have variety in my climate. It is the first one to ripen for me this year and it tastes delicious. The tree is inground and is on it's own root. Shy grower but produces very well.
            This is my pick of the day.

              The one I ate last could have a few more days to ripen on the tree, It tasted less intense, and Brix at 24

            This one was really jammy and sweet, more concentrated berry flavor profile.

              Looks awesome. For growers up north, HdA works well here. It's not early but most of the crop ripens. Quality rivals Smith, though the figs are smaller.

                When does it normally start ripening for you?

                don_sanders -- The tree is youngish, I think this is it's 4th year. Last year it started ripening fruit on Sept 12. For comparison, Smith was 5-6 days earlier.

              It's said to be difficult to root. I managed to root one out of three cuttings, but it took a long time.

                    Looks very good.

                    how far north can these be grown in ground with minimal protection?

                    Thanks

                      I'm not sure; I move my potted fig into a greenhouse for storage in the winter

                    This looks worth finding
                    Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree.

                      HdA is superb. I will be culling hundreds of varieties this winter but HdA is here to stay!!

                        Eric, I think your box of crayons only has one color it it. Every fig you show has that incredible deep red interior that just screams EAT ME!

                        Culling hundreds you say? Makes me wonder what other varieties like HdA have earned an enduring spot at your place. Are you willing to share more on this?

                      DrDraconian 😂 I love that comment.

                      Lots of them don’t look nearly that good until they’re perfectly ripe. It’s amazing what a couple of days more does for figs.

                      Look at this HdA, also from today, that I picked early bc I’ll be out of town. Also, I think it’s pretty clear what type of fig I prefer. 😂

                        It was about my favorite tasting fig last year. Looking forward to it again, but none ripening yet.
