  • Paratjal Rimada main - Beauty and brains

    ​​​​​​Such an all around great fig. One of the more beautiful and really interesting texture and flavor. Not as jelly-like as a CdD but super dense, its meaty is all I can describe. Flavor is relatively mild berry but with an interesting rich and complex aftertaste, a fig to ponder over . These have been really hard to judge ripeness for me as well. They stay pretty firm and another I picked that I let hang a bit longer started spoiling a bit. This is really my first year getting fruit on this tree (last year had a few really late in the year) so can imagine the potential with another season or two.

    Looks great. It’s a striking fig and reminds me of BNR. I wonder if the spoilage has to do with caprification and heat. During the hottest part of last summer, I had a couple weeks where some figs tended to spoil if they got overripe. This problem went away once the weather cooled down a bit.

      These just keep getting better. Such a great variety. They have been splitting quite a bit though, but it's dry enough here that they still are able to ripen without going bad.

        How long did you let this one hang, Chris? It looks amazing.

        Evan These have been really hard for me to judge, they stay firm even when seemingly ripe. A few that I picked early which felt like they could go a few more days were actually spoiled inside. They do show the hint of a drop of honey and I have been letting them go a few days after I see that. Mine have also been getting more purple/red hues right about when they are ready as well. So I would say probably 4-6 days after they look pretty droopy... if that helps!
