  • Inchário Preto

    This is my first official main crop of the year.. Very brown sugar figgy flavor, to me very similar to Black Mission.

      Nice to see this fig correctly ripening near Pacific shores.As the young tree settles on its ground over the seasons, . the fig quality and attributes will certainly improve.
      Here it's nr1 on most southern farm markets every season (either fresh or dry). Congratulations!

          Tom, on the old Figs 4 Fun forum I saw one of our members here ( Vladis ) say that it's important to not over-water in order to get the best flavor, and deeper red flesh (if I remember right). Igor ( greenfig ) has some experience with this. Any of you guys care to comment on your experience with how watering (or over-watering) affects Inchário Preto? And especially important: how can you tell when it NEEDS water? I don't have a plant yet (killed my scions this spring), but I'd like to learn.

            JR Thank you for providing specific information. I agree: mulch is very important! I'm curious: how much rain do you get per year? The average here is about 14 inches (35 cm).

            @ZomVee,

            Congratulations ! The tree look much bigger
            Nice IP fruit ! How would you do for pollination? ...Let Nature bring it in or force it with a few mature Profichis brought from the caprifig?
            Once the job done the fruit will show diff skin color and loose the light glare ... and this shall be done rapidly.

            These were pollinated a few days before pics date
            Tones of Emerald light color appear on the fruit skin following pollination..together with a few white speckles!
            Wish you good luck

              At the moment I'm at the mercy of nature!

              I have a couple caprifigs, but they haven't begun housing wasps just yet.
