  • Eaubonne 2021

    This is my first time trying Eaubonne. It is a small fig with yellow, almost orange, coloring that turns brown as it becomes fully ripe. It has an unusual flavor, and I'll have to keep trying it to be sure--but it seemed like a sweet melon and caramel flavor, although to be honest I'm not good at describing flavors. Some people say a picture is worth a thousand words, so with that:

            Eaubonne started ripening early to mid June, here, in the desert. Apologies for the blurry photos.

              Thanks for the post - I am hoping to get first fruit from mine (1st year rooted cutting) later this season. The fruit ripened in Virginia reminds me of Campaniere - is the fruit larger?

                I also thought there were some similarities (I’m not saying they are the same or synonyms). Size and shape seem similar and they both seem to ripen pretty early. Also both are FDM figs
