      Both breba and main are high quality and delicious, you will enjoy them both next season.

      It's moderately late, Kevin, but sooo worth the wait. Mine ripened in mid-Oct. last year.

      Anticipation sucks, lol

      acerpictum, The leaves fell victim to rust...there are still some further up. I can't win here with all the rain and humidity.

      Ktrain The remaining leaves "feed" the inflorescences (in the photo, the flowering phase). Perhaps the absence of leaves at the nodes retards development. Then there will be a stage of "internal" growth, or the so-called "dormancy", when the inside - the ovarys - grows and fills the cavity, and the external dimensions of the syconium change little. You need to be patient. And in the future, try to keep the leaves.

    This has become my favorite fig for the SW FL environment. Excellent tasting, beautiful, precocious and highly productive. And it holds up reasonably well to splitting in the rainy season. We will see if it still keeps the number one spot when my Smiths start producing.

        Kevin I put WM#1 and LSU Gold in ground this spring, and a couple more. The WM#1 is just gorgeous, and it has set a lot of fruit this year. I would encourage you to plant this one for sure. It was the best fig I tasted last year.

        That fig didn’t stand a chance again that knife. Poor thing.

        WD#1 is truly an amazing fig. Top 10 for any grower.

              Got a 2nd leaf tree that made a proper main trunk this year after a regen prune. It set several figs, so I’m hopeful I can try it this year.

                Mine got taken out by ambrosia beetles; hadn’t planned to replace it but I hear nothing but good about it. Well done…

Stands over 8 feet tall with fruit at every node. I’m very impressed with its vigor and precocity. I hear it tastes good, too. 🤞🏻
