ID:	1020885 First one that fell off but needed another day. Very small. Moderate berry flavor but the acidity was there so this has potential once properly ripened. Still in a one gallon from a Kremp rooted cutting aquired spring 2020.

      Mine won't root after 4 months still. So I stuck it in the ground the other day. It's now do or die.

        I’ve had problems with this one too. Lost all three cuttings this winter.

      If it still has viable buds, try to graft some of them as Chip-bud grafts. You will end up with some nice branches and figs next season. Good luck.

        I have a couple of rooted cuttings that I hope to get a few figs from this year. I've heard good things about this one.

          Great post, thank you! Rossellino's small size makes me hope that it will be be a good fig. I have a couple of trees growing and they have been vigorous and productive, but I'm still waiting for my first fig.

            I tried my first fig from this tree and it was my second big surprise of 2021. I super sweet flavor and a lot of berry taste! I'm excited about this variety!

              @Clarkj2 Maybe there have been more than two, but I was thinking of Algerian Chetoui as the first. Zaffiro was good but I was expecting that

              Great looking tree on the video. A lot of times the ones you almost miss are some of the best.

              Finodejete Yes, I was thinking something similar. If you don't see them, you aren't tempted to pick them too early!

            I would be excited to grow Rossellino. It's definitely on my list.
